XXX MUNICIPAL OFFICEBS. 



1876. 



The City of Chicago was organized under the general incorporation act in 
April, 1875, and consequently no election was held in November, 1875; but the per- 
sons then in office held over until May, 1876. Under the new law the city was di- 
vided into eighteen wards. 

Mayor— MONROE HEATH, *H. D. COLVIN, *THOMAS HOYNE. 
City Clerk— CASPAR BUTZ.

City Treasurer— CLINTON BRIGGS.

Sixteenth Ward — Frank Linsenbarth, Jacob Lengacher. 

Seventeenth Ward — M. Sweeney, David Murphy. 

Eighteenth Ward — Jas. A. Kirk, Jacob Boser. 



*Note.— The order passed by the City Council, providing- for an election for city officers 
under the (new) general incorporation act, omitted all reference to the office of Mayor. Not- 
withstanding this omission, and the apparent absence of any authority, a popular vote was 
taken for Mayor at the election, and Thomas Hoyne received 33,064 votes, 819 scattering. 

The canvass of the returns being made to the Council, the vote given for Mayor was disre- 
garded; but the new Council, at its first meeting, decided to canvass the returns, and, having 
done so, declared Mr. Hoyne duly elected Mayor. 

Mr. Colvin, the incumbent, then declining to yield possession of his office on the plea that he 
was entitled to "hold over" under the law, a reference was had to the courts of law, resulting in 
the virtual failure of each of the contestants to sustain his position. 

In consequence, a special election for Mayor was ordered by the Council, which was held 
July 12, 1876. at which Monroe Heath was duly elected. 

tChas. Tarnow was elected to fill a vacancy caused by the resignation of J. H. Hildretb.

next greatest number of votes. The contest was not determined during the year, and conse-

Present — Aid. Kenna. Coughlin, Pike,

man, Badenoch, Nelson. Mavor, Watkins,

Absent — None. 

Aid. Goldzier presented the following reso- 
lution: 

Whereas, The system by which in former 
years the Standing Committees in this Coun- 
cil were appointed by the action of party 
caucuses tends to impair the usefulness of 
these Committees by reason of the fact that 
political affiliation is made the most impor- 
tant factor in such selections and thereby the 
fitness of the men for the various appoint- 
ments is relegated to a secoudary place; and 

Whereas, The partisan political method 
of selecting Committees has met with the 
condemnation of well-meaning people of 
every political faith, and has been denounced 
by the public press and by civic bodies as an 
adjunet to corruption and mismanagement of 
public affairs; and 

Whereas, The large majority of this 
Council is bound by solemn pledges in favor 
of an honest and non-partisan organization 
in whieh fitness and integrity alone shall de- 
termine the Committee places to be assigned 
to the various Aldermen without reference 
to politics: and 

Whereas, It is the sense of this Council 
that these pledges should be carried out in 
good faith in the interest of good and clean 
city government; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That a Committee of ten Alder- 
men be selected by this Council whose duty it 
shall be to prepare and report to this Council 
at its next regular meeting a full list ©f 
Standing Committees of this Council for the 
ensuing year. 

Resolved further. That in making such 
selections the said Committee be and it is 
hereby instructed to choose for the various 
chairmen and members of the Standing Com- 
mittees the Aldermen who. in their opinion, 
are best qualified for such positions without 
regard to any other considerations whatever. 

Resolved further. That the said Committee

Council, namely: Aldermen Jackson, Mavor, 
Pettibone, Beilfuss, Raymer, Herrmann, 
Carey, Maypole, Brennan (10th ward), and 
Goldzier. 

Aid. Goldzier moved that the resolution be 
read. 

Aid. Rector moved to dispense with the 
reading of the resolution, and meved its refer- 
ence to the Committee on Judiciary. 

Aid. Raymer presented a list of Standing- 
Committees of the Council for the year 
1901, and moved its adoption as a substitute 
for Aid. Goldzier's resolution. 

Aid. Goldzier moved to suspend the rules 
to adopt his resolution. 

POINT OF ORDER.- 

Aid. Mavor rose to a point of order, his 
point of order being that the Council was not 
at the present time operating- under any 
special rules, and therefore a motion to sus- 
pend the rules was not in order. 

The Chair decided the point of order not 
well taken. 

The Chair directed the Clerk to call the 
roll on the motion to suspend the rules.

Aid. Goldzier presented the following: 
resolution : 

Waereas, The system by which in former 
years the Standing; Committes in this Council 
were appointed by the action of party cau- 
cuses tends to impair the usefulness of these 
committees by reason of the fact that political 
affiliation is made the most important factor 
in such selections,' and thereby the fitness of 
the men for the various appointments is rele- 
gated to a secondary place ; and, 

Whereas, The partisan political method of 
selecting- committees has met with the con- 
demnation of well-meaning- people of every 
political faith, and has been denounced by the 
public press and by civic bodies as an adjunct 
to corruption and mismanagement of public 
affairs; and, 

Whereas, The large majority of this 
Council is bound by solemn pledges in favor 
©f an honest and non-partisan ©rg-anization 
in which fitness and integrity alone shall de- 
termine the committee places to be assigned 
to the various Aldermen without reference to 
politics; and, 

Whereas, It is the sense of this Council 
that these pledges should be carried out in 
good faith in the interest of good and clean 
City Government ; therefore be it 

Besohed, That a Committee of ten Alder- 
men be selected by this Council, whose duty it 
shall be to prepare and report to this Council 
at its next regular meeting a full list of 
Standing- Committees of this Council for the 
ensuing- year. 

Resolved, further, That in makine- snnh R «.

mittees the Aldermen who, in their opinion, 
are best qualified for such positions without 
regard t® any other considerations whatever. 

Resolved, further, That the said Commit- 
tee be composed of the following members of 
this Council, namely : Aid. Jackson, Mavor. 
Pettibone, Beilfuss, Badenoch, Herrmann, 
Carey, Maypole, Brennan (10th ward) and 
Goldzier.

Illinois Statute provides as follows: "That 
when the number of Aldermen in any such 
city shall reach seventy, by reason of such 
annexed territory, the City Council shall re- 
district said city into thirty-five new wards 
and no more"; and 

Whereas, A lar^e majority of the Alder- 
men elected upon a platform to vote and 
work for a non-partisan redistriction of the 
city ; be it therefore 

Resolved, That the Mayor is hereby directed 
to appoint a committee of ten members of the

Thereupon, the resolution was referred to

His Honor, the Mayor, submitted his An- 
nual Message for the year ending December 
31, 1899, as follows: 

MESSAGE OF MAYOR HARRISON. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City 
of Chicago: 

Gentlemen— In making the annual re- 
port required of the Mayor by the charter, I 
deem it my duty to call the attention of your 
Honorable Body, and through you the at- 
tention of the general public, to the financial 
condition of the City of Chicago. Justice to 
the Aldermen and other city officials, as well 
as the extreme necessities of the city itself, 
alike demand the giving of the fullest pos- 
sible publicity to the difficulties with which 
the legislative and executive departments of 
the mnnicipal government must contend in 
providing those conveniences our citizens 
have the right to expect and to demand. 

CITY'S FINANCIAL CREDIT. 

The general financial credit of the city, as 
shown by the Comptroller's report, is good. 
The refunding bonds are eagerly seized by 
bankers and capitalists at low rates of in- 
terest. Chicago's water certificates, im- 
provement bonds and time warrants have 
commanded a ready market. This, indeed, 
is not surprising. The bonded and other in- 
debtedness of Chicago compared both with 
the tremendous value of its taxable prop- 
erty and with the tangible property belong- 
ing to the municipality itself is surprisingly

tions prescribed originally for a provincial 
town. 

CONSTITUTIONAL RESTRICTIONS BURDENSOME. 

Chicago is working to-day under the re- 
strictions imposed by the Constitution of 
1870. As the years have passed by and 
Chicago has become more and more a world's 
city, the expectations of its citizenship have 
increased. There has been a constant demand 
for departures from the original scheme of 
government. What would have been con- 
sidered extravagant luxuries thirty years ago 
have become necessities to-day, and the peo- 
ple are insistent in their demand that these 
necessities be provided. What a few of 
these necessities are may be learned from a 
hasty summary of the legislation of the past 
quarter of a century. In the early '70's the 
demand was for a great park and boulevard 
system. 

MULTIPLICITY OF MUNICIPAL BODIES. 

Under the restrictions of the constitutional 
indebtedness this system could not be pro- 
vided by the general municipality, so the 
three park boards were organized, and three 
separate and distinct taxing bodies were thus 
forced upon the people. Sanitary conditions 
late in the Ws demanded the diversion of 
the flow of the Chicago River and its sewage 
away from the source of the city's water 
supply, and again, owing to the limitations 
of the city government, a new taxing body, 
the Sanitary District, was organized. 

In these two cases it has been possible to 
meet the public demand by the creation of 
new taxing bodies exercising what should be 
of right municipal functions. In other 
words, the general necessity has been met 
and provided for, though at the expense of a 
scattered public authority resulting from the 
organizations of four municipal bodies, inde- 
pendent in every sense of responsibility to, or 
controlled by, the central city government. 

The years have developed other necessities, 
however, and for these it has not been pos- 
sible to make a like provision. The public 
not only demands better service in every de- 
partment of the municipal government ; 
new services are expected, and year after 
year the demand for them becomes more in- 
sistent. 

INCREASE AND DEVELOPMENT OF PUBLIC 



old days, even though the public refuse to 
assist the administration by laying permanent, 
smooth pavements. Garbage must not only 
by removed from the alleys, but the cry has 
arisen for a sanitary disposition ef it after 
collection. The public does not stop to con- 
sider that sanitary disposition either by re- 
duction or incineration costs money, and 
that a fund already insufficient to care fer 
satisfactory collection can hardly be made te 
spread over both collection and disposition, 
Fire protection must be ample and police 
surveillance must keep pace with the growth 
of the city. The health of the citizens must 
be conserved. The extension of the electric 
lighting is imperatively demanded. 

BATHS, HOSPITALS, PARKS AND BRIDGES. 

Public baths must be established, and, so 
we are told, emergency hospitals are an ab- 
solute necessity in a great city. There is 
today a widespread demand for small parks 
and playgrounds in thickly settled districts. 
The homeless poor must be housed, for in 
this way alone, we are informed, may the 
tramp question receive a proper and safe 
solution. The old bridges, rapidly going to 
decay, must be renewed with modern struc- 
tures, and if Chicago is to maintain its 
prestige as the great shipping center of the 
great lakes system the tunnels and center 
piers must be removed. New police stations 
must be built, for the old ones are unsanitary 
and generally a disgrace to the community. 

PROMPT ACTION DEMANDED. 

These are but a few of the demands made 
by the intelligent citizens and reform organi- 
zations of Chicago upon the municipal gov- 
ernment. That they are just no one will 
dispute. That they are urgent no one knows 
better than the Aldermen of Chicago. That 
they cost money is a self-evident proposition. 
That the City Government lacks the means 
of providing for them is a fact well-known to 
your Honorable Body. The earlier the gen- 
eral public learns to understand that compli- 
ance with its demands depends not upon the 
municipality, but upon the bodies upon whom 
is devolved the duty of providing revenue for 
the municipality, the earlier will the City of 
Chicago be in a position to manage its affairs 
as they should be managed by the second city 
on the western continent. 

All these things are the result of an ad-

|~1900 



PUBLIC EYE ON MUNICIPAL AFFAIRS. 

One of the best signs of the times i« the 
increased attention paid by th« general pub- 
lic to municipal affairs. The fact is at last 
recognized that the government of the Ameri- 
can municipality is the foundation of all 
government. Upon this foundation the en- 
tire superstructure of State and Federal 
Government rests. While the foundation is 
rotten, danger threatens everything; make it 
safe and secure and we obtain a footing upon 
which we may gradually but surely build all 
the reforms needed by the nation at large. 
The interest in municipal affairs is a step in 
the right direction. It gives evidence of a 
healthy trend of public mind which it should 
be the duty of every public officer to encour- 
age and foster. In doing this, however, it 
becomes imperative that the public should be 
kept informed of the obstacles in the way of 
its securing attention to its demands. 



MONEY A NECESSITY. 

The fact must be biought home to the 
people that something more than intelligent 
law making, honest law administration and a 
wise executive supervision is demanded. 
Money is an imperative prerequisite if the 



city government is to pay heed to the requests 
of the citizens. The cry of those entrusted 
with the management ©f municipal affairs is 
today, as it has been for a generation, for 
money. With money your Honorable Body 
may comply with each and every public de- 
mand ; without it you are as powerless as a 
skillful mechanic robbed of his tools. 



FINANCIAL RECEIPTS AND GROWTH OF POPU- 
LATION. 

In this connection an instructive lesson may 
be learned from a comparison of the growth of 
the city's financial receipts with the remark- 
able increase of its population and its wealth. 
In a well ordered municipality the revenues 
should grow apace with populatio' , with 
territory and with corporate and individual 
wealth. The wealth of a healthy community 
grows evenly with the population ; indeed its 
population should be a sure and accurate 
barometer of its wealth. It goes without 
saying that within certain limits the revenues 
of a city should depend upon its wealth and 
should increase steadily with it. 

The following table shows that something 
is and for years has been wrong in Chicago, 
radically and disastrously wrong:

This table shows that in twenty-seven years 
the territory of Chicago has become five and 
one-half times greater, the population four 
and one-half times greater, while the reve- 
nues of the city government are only two 
and One-half times greater. In the mean- 
while the people of Chicago demand both a 
higher grade of service and a greater service. 
The luxuries of thirty years ago are to-day 
accounted necessities. A service that would

sible for it. Chicago is no longer satisfied 
with being a mere money-maker, careless of 
attire, slovenly in appearance and indifferent 
to outside opinion. It has become a world's 
city ; its people have acquired new ideals and 
are moved by high aspirations ; they demand 
a city worthy of Chicago's size, its wealth, 
its name and the character of its citizenship.

city government is justly entitled to a greater 
revenue than it receives and that the average 
citizen pays too heavy a tax upon his prop- 
erty. The visible property of Chicago from 
time immemorial has been burdened with 
more than its fair share of taxation. It is the 
invisible property, the stocks, the bonds, the 
hoarded cash, that may readily be concealed 
from an .assessor only too willing to be 
thwarted in his search, that has escaped tax- 
ation. This condition of affairs has largely 
been due to the infamous system of assess- 
ment with which this community for years was 
cursed. The chief object sought to be ob- 
tained by the new revenue law was to enable 
the honest holder of securities to make 
known his possessions with the certainty of 
receiving fair treatment and being given an 
honest assessment. 

A strong effort should be undertaken to 
make Chicago a cheap city to live in and to 
do business in, attractive alike to the busy 
manufacturer and the retired capitalist. 
Every encouragement should fee extended to 
the wealthy man to make this city his home, 
so to reduce and equalize taxation that it 
would be mdney in the capitalist's pocket to 
pay his taxes here. No better move towards 
adding t® the greatness of Chicago could be 
made than to place living within our limits 
on so reasonable a basis that Chicago would 
become the Mecca of wealthy men harrassed 
by taxation in their present homes. Then 
our real estate would rise in value, our houses 
and apartment buildings would be filled with 
prosperous tenants, our artisans and laborers 
would command steady work at a living wage, 
and prosperity would be felt from on*- limit 
of the city to the other. 

CONSOLIDATION OF PUBLIC BODIES. 

This desirable end may be easily attained 
by an intelligent and patriotic effort. A good 
step in the right direction is to be found in 
the recent and insistent agitation for a con- 
solidation of governments within the city 
limits. Personally, I am unalterably opposed 
to any scheme of consolidation depending for 
its accomplishment upon an addition to Chi- 
cago's present territorial limits. This city is 
to-day so spread over an extensive and unpro- 
ductive territory as to render an extension i f 
its territorial limits absolutely out of the 
question. Before we add to our territory we 
should build up and provide for what we 

hnvp tn-rltur 



we can weld the present taxing bodies exer- 
cising municipal functions within the limits 
of Chicago into an harmonious whole, by 
which useless officers may be dispensed 
with, all the various municipal functions 
be combined intelligently under indi- 
vidual control, and the responsibility for 
bad government be placed where the 
people may readily see at whose door the fault 
properly lies. Good government demands a 
single undivided responsibility, that meri- 
torious administration may properly be re- 
warded by continuance in service, and evil 
administration rebuked and punished by 
defeat at the polls. 

This question of a consolidation ®f existing 
governments should be considered not by 
outside irresponsible bodies, no matter how 
pure their motives, but by the people's paid 
servants, the legislative and executive 
branches of the City Government. 

APPOINTMENT OF CONSOLIDATION COMMITTEE. 

And I would therefore recommend that 
your Honorable Body appoint a Committee, 
composed of the best informed of its mem- 
bers, immediately to take up this question 
and consider it wisely and temperately, that 
an intelligent scheme may be in readiness for 
consideration when the next legislature is 
convened. 

Within the present limits of the City of 
Chicago taxes are raised for and expended by 
the city, the school board, the library board, 
the county, the West Park, South Park and 
Lincoln Park boards, and the South Town, 
West Town, North Town, Lake View, Jeffer- 
son, Lake and Hyde Park town boards. 
Each of these boards and bodies has a full 
staff of executive and administrative officers 
for duties which frequently could be per- 
formed by one man, and which at all times 
would be more satisfactorily performed if 
done under the direction and supervision of 
a single head. 

Why should the parks, for example, be 
under the direction of three separate and 
distinct bodies, with no community of execu- 
tive administration, though with an absolute 
community of interest as far as the expense 
to and the benefits to be enjoyed by the tax- 
payers is concerned? The years that 
have passed since first the proposi- 
tion was made to unite the West

Parks by way of California avenue, are a 
sufficient answer f©r the most unthinking 
citizen. So also may the answer be found in 
the futile figuring upon a connection be- 
tween Michigan boulevard and tbe Lake 
Shore drive that has lasted for years and ap- 
parently is no nearer a solution to-day than 
it was at the hour it received its first consid- 
eration. Three separate bodies have ac- 
complished but little in a generation and a 
half towards making Chicago's park system 
an harmonious whole ; a single executive 
body would have solved the problem in a 
short length of time. The taxpayers of 
Chicago to-day are paying seven assessors, 
seven collectors, seven supervisors and seven 
town clerks as well as maintaining full com- 
plements of officials in three park boards, 
where all the work could easily be performed 
by a single man in each position and at a 
very moderate salary. 

The scheme for consolidation should be 
taken up primarily by a committee of y©ur 
Honorable Body. That committee in t «rn 
could consult with representatives of the va- 
rious other taxing bodies and devise a method 
to simplify work, imor@ve conditions and re- 
sult in a larere annual saving of money to the 
tax-ridden citizens of Chicago. 

MERGING OF SANITARY DISTRICT WITH CITY 
WATER DEPARTMENT. 

While awaiting the general consolidation 
of the various local taxing bodies, an imme- 
diate step- should be taken towards adopting 
a plan for the merging of the Sanitary Dis- 
trict with the city water department. The two 
bodies are thoroughly homogeneous in pur- 
pose, and should be operated by ©ne respon- 
sible head. 

With the present outstanding water 
certificates issued in payment of tun- 
nels, intercepting * ewers and pump- 
ing stations, added to the sum nec- 
essary t® complete the work already 
ordered by your Honorable Body, the funds 
of the water office will be hypothecated for 
at least six years to come. At the end ©f 
that time or shortly thereafter, when these 
great works shall have been completed and 
paid for, the surplus receipts of the water 
office over its disbursements must either be 
returned to the taxpayer in the shape of 
greatly reduced water rates, or applied to 



called the drainage canal, and the wiping out 
of the debt incurred in its construction. 
□ There is no fairer tax on earth than the low 
water tax charged by the municipality of 
Chicago, nor can the earnings of that depart- 
ment r e more fittingly applied than to the 
purposes of sustaining the g^eat connecting 
link between Lake Michigan and the Missis- 
sippi River. In time, the importance of the 
great work undertaken and carried out 
single-handed by the City of Chicago will be 
appreciated at its full value by the General 
Federal Government. Until then it is of the 
first importance so to operate it as to lessen 
the burden of taxation bearing upon the 
shoulders of the people ©f Chicago. 

By wiping out the separate corporation 
known as the Sanitary District and combin- 
ing its functions with the City Water De- 
partment, not only will the salary account to 
be met by the citizens of Chicago be greatly 
reduced, but the two institutions, existing as 
they do for the one single purpose of afford- 
ing our people an abundance of pure drink- 
ing water at the lowest possible rate, may be 
managed by one head along the same lines. 

SHIP CANAL COMMISSION. 

I would recommend the appointment of a 
commission, composed of citizens as well as 
members of your Honorable Body, to for- 
ward the ship canal scheme to a success- 
ful issue. In the Forty-fourth Congress 
a predecessor as Mayor, my father, 
at that time Congressman from the old 
Second District, advocated in the House 
of Representatives the digging by the Gen- 
eral Government of a ship canal which should 
take the place of the old Illinois and Mich- 
igan canal. He directed the attention of the 
people t© the importance of the waterway 
aijd to the fact that wherever there is a 
waterway railroad rates go down. The 
waterway may not be. used, but the possi- 
bility of its use prevents the railroad monop- 
olists from practicing extortion on the ship- 
ping public. 

The old Illinois and Michigan canal has 
repaid the people in reduced railroad rates 
over and over again the money it originally 
cost, and while t©day it is and for years has 
been unused except by an occasional canal- 
boat, its. influence upon the question of rail- 
road rates can be disouted by no one. Re- 



April 9,J 

• should use all the energy that has made its 
name famous to prevail upon Congress not 
only to take up the question of a ship canal, 
but to push the scheme to completion. Our 
citizens should not rest content until a four- 
teen foot channel is extended from the pres- 
ent terminus of the sanitary canal to the 
junction of the Illinois with the Mississippi, 
and a continuous waterway extends from our 
outer harbor to the Gulf of Mexico. 

The close connection between Chicago and 
the Sanitary District is shown by the recent 
universal demand of our citizens that the 
water power to be developed at Loekport 
should be applied to the general purposes of 
this municipality rather than be given, at a 
nominal figure, for a long term of years, to a 
syndicate of capitaiists. Chicago feels that the 
Drainage Channel and all that appertains to 
it is its own, and it will not brook any private 
interference with the scheme of utilizing all 
the advantages growing out of the canal for 
its own purposes. Our citizens have seen too 
often property rights of great value granted 
at ridiculous figures to single individuals 
instead of utilizing them for the benefit 
of all citizens. The value of this 
water power is shown by the report, of the 
Department of Electricity. The tremendous 
saving in fuel bills will more than justify any 
step taken by your Honorable Body to secure 
this valuable privilege for Chicago. 

WATER POWER BOND ISSUE. 

Under authority of the City Council of 
March 5, 1900, the Comptroller has had pre- 
pared an issue of bonds of an amount suffi- 
cient to develop this water power ($2,500,000), 
and a test case will be made to settle whether 
the city may legally issue these bonds. 
Should the court's decisions be adverse to the 
city, immediately upon the convening of the 
next Legislature, empowering legislation 
should be asked in order that the necessary 
money may be raised. By passing a bill with 
the emergency clause, the question could be 
submitted to a vote of the people at the 
sprincr election of 1901 and the direct author- 
ity of the people be obtained for the develop- 
ment and transmission of this power to ope- 
rate the city pumping stations and to light 
our city streets. Pending such action, the 
Trustees of the Sanitary District owe the 
duty to the citizens of Chicago, whom they 
represent, to permit uo combination of cap- 



12 11900 

Another proof of this intimate relationship 
is afforded by the necessity now devolving 
upon the Sanitary District of replacing the 
center-pier oridges with bridges of the bas- 
cule type. The report of the Commissioner 
of Public Woaks, submitted to your Honor- 
able Body with the department estimates for 
the annual appropriation bill, shows that of 
the fifty bridges along the Chicago and Calu- 
met Rivers, four are absolutely closed, or 
closed to general traffic, while fifteen are not 
adequate for present service, or are quite be- 
yond repair. Of this latter number, only five— 
namely: Dearborn street, Randolph street, 
Washington street, Polk street and Twenty- 
second street — are along the channel of the 
drainage canal. All the other bridges span- 
ning this part of the river are susceptible of 
repairs at a moderate charge. For these re- 
pairs funds have been appropriated in this 
year's bill. 

The necessity of removing the other bridges 
along the channel of the drainage canal arises 
from the difficulties of navigation, occasioned 
by the current which the opening of the canal 
has created, in addition to the demands of the 
shipping interests, which have shared so 
greatly in the work of building up Chicago to 
what it is to-day. Even before the opening 
of the canal, every consideration for the 
future career of Chicago imperatively de- 
manded the retention of this city's pre-emi- 
nence as the greatest shipping point of the 
lake system, and to retain this place it was 
necessary that every obstruction to giving 
the Chicago river a channel depth that would 
float the largest steamers traveling on the 
great lakes, should be removed. 

SAFEGUARDING SHIPPING INTERESTS, LOWER- 
ING TUNNELS AND REMOVING CENTER 
PIER BRIDGES. 

It was for these reasons the cry went up 
that the tunnels must be lowered and the 
center piers removed. Chicago saw the 
heaviest and most valuable shipping of the 
great lakes slipping away from her harbor, 
and recognized after a decade of supineness 
and shiftlessness what future loss would be 
entailed upon the city unless the evil were 
corrected speedily. But one means of pro- 
viding the funds was at hand and that 
through the instrumentality of a bond issue, 
a slow method of remedying an immediate 
evil. The opening of the canal demonstrated 






April 9,J 

using this pert to other harbors. The 
Chicago river was not only impossible of 
access for the largest steamers, but the 
medium-sized steamers were about to be 
driven away from it. The idea suggested 
itself to me that as the same taxpayers were 
supporting the city and sanitary corporations 
and as the Sanitary District was the immedi- 
ate cause of this threatened danger, it was 
only fair and just for the latter body, whose 
financial condition would permit the outlay 
of funds, to assume the obligation of reliev- 
ing the situation. 1 accordingly addressed a 
communication to your Honorable Body, 
January 29, 1900, in which I asked the Trus- 
tees of the Sanitary District to confer with 
the municipal authorities upon the advisa- 
bility of the Sanitary District undertaking 
the desirable work of removing all center 
pier bridges from the m®uth of the Chicago 
River and along the line of its channel to 
Robey street. I entertain strong hopes of 
bringing about this result. 

LONG TIME BONDS FOR PERMANENT IMPROVE- 
MENTS. 

There is a growing feeling on the part of 
the citizens in favor of the issuance of long 
time bonds to provide for permanent improve- 
ments. To the average man it does not seem 
just that he should be called upon to pay out 
of his pocket not only the current expenses 
of the municipality, but all .charges for im- 
provements of a permanent character that 
are to inure to the benefit of and be enjoyed 
by a succeeding generation. He feels that 
each generation as it comes upon the scene 
should share with its predecessors the burden 
of providing permanent improvements. Be- 
sides the evident unfairness of the proposi- 
tion, he recognizes the business advantage of 
issuing bonds and building well, rather than 
saving driblets from the current revenue and 
making flimsy improvements. Chicago has 
not issued a bond since the fire, with the ex- 
ception of the World's Fair Bonds, for other 
than refunding purposes, and the improve- 
ments made with the proceeds of its bonds 
have all passed away in flames. 

While I am a warm advocate of a bond 
issue, especially at the present time, I ap- 
preciate the danger of giving any municipal- 
ity such authority unless it be adequately 
safeguarded. It is an easy thing to soend 
another man's money in the first place, and 



13 



[1900 



of an immediate personal interest rather than 
a remote general interest would be likely to 
prevail upon the best of Aldermen to mis- 
apply the proceeds of a bond issue and divert 
the money obtained from such a source from 
the legitimate purpose of providing per- 
manent improvements to caring for the im- 
mediate temporary wants of the wards. 

For that reason the authority to issue bonds 
should be so hedged in with safeguards that 
not a single dollar could be diverted from the 
purpose for which it was authorized. Each 
sale of bonds should be authorized for a 
specific purpose, to be issued only as occasion 
or necessity required, and to be expended 
under the control of a conservative and honest 
commission. 

A CONSERVATIVE, HONEST BOND COMMISSION. 

The amouut to be issued should be con- 
trolled by the ability of the city frem its cur- 
rent revenues to provide for interest account 
and a sinking fund. Indiscriminate issuing 
of bonds, unaccompanied by something more 
than a bare proviso that a sinking fund shall 
be accumulated to take up the bonds at 
maturity, would not only be foolhardy, but 
criminal. While this proviso is embodied in 
every law authorizing a bond issue, Chicago 
so far has paid off very few bonds. Good 
business policy demands the actual accumula- 
tion of such funds as well as that no bonds 
should be issued which may not so be pro- 
vided for. 

The immediate purposes for which per- 
manent improvement bonds sh®uld be issued 
are so many, that at first blush the conserva- 
tive business man throws up his hands in 
horror at the temerity of an administration 
making, in sober earnest, such recommenda- 
tions. He forgets that Chicago, since before 
the great fire, has not issued a bond for 
strictly municipal purposes to meet the 
necessities of its growth-for the purposes of 
the World's Fair bonds are to be regarded 
rather in the light of luxuries than as neces- 
sities. In all the past twenty-nine years this 
great metropolis financially has been leading 
a hand-to-mouth existence, drifting from 
great want to absolute penury: the penury 
and disgrace of issuing scrip to meet its ob- 
ligations and seeing its scrip dishonored be- 
fore the world by selling far below par; 
struggling by strictest measures of economy 
from scrio to mfipt.ino- ii-o a^k — 4.,- __ili_

revenues shrinking year after year, dwindling 
under the touch of the dishonest assessment 
law enforced by dishonest assessors, until to- 
day, looking about and recognizing the rav- 
ages of time and the demands of a progressive 
citizenship, it sees where millions should be 
spent in place of the thousands in its power 
to spend. 

SCHEDULE OF PERMANENT IMPROVEMENTS 
FOR WHICH BONDS SHOULD BE ISSUED. 

It requires something akin to courage to 
manage the affairs of a great city in circum- 
stances like these. The people do not stop to 
consider why they are not getting what they 
are entitled to as tfce citizens of the second 
American city. They know what they want, 
they ask for it and if they fail t© get it they 
make their displeasure known. It is useless 
to argue that the city has not the money; 
there is nothing for an administration to do 
but to struggle to make both ends meet and 
to spread the money at hand over as great a 
territory as possible. 

The permanent improvements for which 
bonds should be issued might be classed as 
follows : 

Bridges— Bonds to be issued as the im- 
'provements progress $5,000,000 

Police Stations— Bonds to be issued as 
the improvements progress 750,000 

Fire Engine Houses— Bonds to be issued 
as the improvements progress 500,000 

Development of Sanitary District 
water power 2,500,000 

Electric lighting plant (including power 
houses, underground conduits, etc.. 
sufficient to light the entire city) 2,000,000 

To take up outstanding judgments 2,500,000 

To establish small parks and play- 
grounds (ten in the densely populated 
river wards, such as the 2d. 3d, 5th, 
6th, 7th, 8th, 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th 
and 23d wards) 2,000,000 

Each of these bond issues should be for a 
specific purpose, rendering it impossible to 
divert the funds from the purpose for which 
the bonds were issued. In addition to this 
the Mayor should be authorized to appoint a 
commission of citizens whose duty it should 
be to guard against any diversion of funds 
and to protect the taxpayers in an intelligent, 
honest and economical expenditure of the 
moneys raised. 

With the exception of small parks and 



is desired are discussed elsewhere in this re- 
port. In reference to these subjects a brief 
discussion will be sufficient. At the time of 
the passage of the last appropriation bill the 
judgments outstanding against the city and 
unprovided for amounted to the sum of 
§2,324,944.33. These judgments are drawing 
interest at the rate of 6 per cent and 5 per 
cent, according to the date of their award. 
An issue of bonds floated at an interest rate 
of less than 3% per cent would result in an 
annual saving to the city in interest charges 
of approximately §50.000. To bring about 
this result I asked your Honorable Body in a 
communication dated December 18, 1899, for 
authority to issue bonds to the amount of 
82,500,000 for the purpose of taking up all 
outstanding judgments. The authority to 
issue these bonds was authorized by an ordi- 
nance passed March 5, 1900, and submitted to 
the people at the recent election. The 
popular vote was largely in favor of the 
issuance of these bonds. 

No city in the world is more generously 
provided with large parks and boulevards 
than Chicago. Our park system in this re- 
spect is practically complete. In small parks 
the city is by no means poor, as is evidenced 
by such breathing spots as Wicker Park, 
Union Park, Vernon Park, Jefferson Park on 
the West Side. Douglas Monument Park, 
Ellis Park, East End Park ©n the South Side, 
and Washington Square and several small 
parks on the North Side. The criticism of 
these small parks runs not so much to their 
number as to their location. 

PLAYGROUNDS AND PARKS WITHIN REACH OF 
THE POOR NEEDED. 

N© more imperative demand is made of the 
city of the future than that it shall provide 
its citizens, whom the fortunes of life crowd 
into tenements located in densely settled dis- 
tricts, with breathing spots and playgrounds 
for old and young. This is not an aesthetic but 
an hygienic demand. What the poor need is 
not a great park located at such a distance 
from the homes as to require a street-car ride 
to reach it. but an open square in their imme- 
diate neighborhood, with benches for the 
adults and sand piles and swings for the chil- 
dren, with euough trees to provide shade for 
the elders, and not a single "Keep Off the 
Grass"' sign to harass and torment the young-

park and playground fund, net so much for 
the purpose of making an immediate purchase 
®f ground, as for an assurance that Chicago 
appreciates this need of its citizens, and in- 
tends ultimately to provide for it out of its 
current revenues, if the authorization of a 
bond issue for the purpose cannot be secured 
from the Legislature at its next session. 

In discussing the relations existing between 
the municipal government and the Drainage 
District and the various duties devolving 
upon each, I have had ©ccasion to refer to the 
necessity of providing a greater channel 
depth for the Chicago River. In doing this, 
it was necessary to refer to the chief obsta- 
cles in the way of a satisfactory dredging ©f 
the Chicago River by the Federal Govern- 
ment, namely, the obstructions, consisting of 
eenter-pier bridges and the three tunnels 
under the river. I have pointed out the 
. means I have adopted, in conjunction with 
your Honorable Body, to remove the former 
though I purposely avoided at that point a 
discussion of the latter problem. On the 
29th day of May, 1899, I submitted a commu- 
nication to your Honorable Body asking the 
power to appoint a commission to study the 
question of the removal of all obstructions 
from the bed of the Chicago River The 
c@mmission subsequently appointed sub- 
mitted its report, a comprehensive document 
and in accordance with its recemmendations' 
ordinances were passed March 19, 1900, order- 
ing the various street railroad companies im- 
mediately to take steps towards lowering the 
three tunnels in question. 

LOWERING OP TUNNELS NOT LINKED WITH 
QUESTION OF FRANCHISE EXTENSION. 

It has been argued that the introduction 
and passage of these ordinances and an at- 
tempt to enforce their provisions, of neces- 
sity and in all justice must, raise the question 
of an extension of grant to the Union Trac- 
tion Company as the successor and assign of 
the old street railroad companies. This argu- 
ment, it seeme to me, is an argument 
prompted by the desire of interested parties 
to secure an extension of franchise, rather 
than a fair deduction from existing condi- 
tions. Personally, I am absolutely opposed 
to any theory from which an implica- 
tion may be drawn that the lowering 
of the tunnels and the incident ex- 
pense mSUt ha onuci^^ *__, .

City of Chicago and the Chicago Union 
Traction Comp sny. 

For all practical purposes the Washington 
street and LaSalle street tunnels are the ex- 
clusive property of the traction company; 
their lowering is a necessity of the traction' 
company and not of the city. As far as 
general municipal use is concerned, it 
would make no material difference to the cit- 
izens of Chicago whether the tunnels were 
lowered or blown up with dynamite. In 
fact, if the tunnels were free to-day and 
used only by the ordinary traffic of the city 
there would probably be no hesitation ©n the 
part of the people; the tunnels would be in 
stantly removed unless funds could be pro- 
vided for lowering them. The bearing of 
the lowering of the tunnels upon the fran- 
chise question is being purposely exagger- 
ated for personal reasons and it would be 
well for your Honorable Body to consider it 
in all its phases. The only element of jus- 
tice it possesses lies in the question whether 
the city may fairly order the street railroad 
companies to expend a large sum of money 
upon lowering the tunnels when their main 
grant of franchise has so short a time to run. 

CITY SHOULD LOWER TUNNELS ITSELF. 

It is for this reason I have felt the city 
should lower the tunnels itself and in return 
charge the companies for their use a suf- 
ficient annual rental to pa/ a reasonable in- 
terest charge and cover the natural wear and 
tear. The city is to-day endeavoring to settle 
its authority before the courts to issue bonds 
up to 5 per cent of the actual value of its prop- 
erty as shown by the last assessment. Should 
this question be decided in favor of the city, 
my personal inclination would be in favor ©f 
an issue of bonds for this purpose, subject 
to the making of such an agreement as I 
have ©utlined between the municipal and 
street railroad authorities. 

In defaalt of the authority to issue bonds 
an agreement might still be made entailing 
upon the city the obligation of recouping the 
Traction Company for the ©utlay of cash 
necessitated by lowering tbe tunnels. In no 
event should the lowering of the tunnel be 
regarded as a part of the compensation to be 
paid by the companies for an extension of 
franchise, nor as a sufficient reason to com- 
pel the city to take up that important ques- 
tion hurriedly and withont ample preparation.

connection with an extension of franchise to 
the existing street railroad companies are 
compensation, based upon a percentage of 
gross receipts, reduction of fare during the 
crowded hours of the day, a betterment of 
conditions in the accommodation of the pub- 
lic, a provision for municipal acquirement of 
the lines at the expiration of the grant, and a 
requirement that before any ordinance grant- 
ing an extension of franchise shall become 
operative it shall first be submitted at the 
next general election to a direct vote of the 
people and receive popular endorsement. 

The election law provides that "whenever a 
constitutional amendment or other public 
measure is to be voted upon by the people, 
the substance of such amendment or other 
public measure shall be clearly indicated on a 
separate ballot."' etc. This section of the 
law received its first trial at the recent elec- 
tion, when the question of the city issuing 
•S2. 500. 000 worth of bonds, from the proceeds 
of which to refund its outstanding judgment 
indebtedness, was submitted to the people. 
The success of the new methad of sub- 
mitting constitutional amendments or other 



[1900 

public measures on a separate ballet was 
pronounced. The vote on the question was 
heavy, giving indisputable evidence of the 
ease with which public opinion concerning 
any proposed measure may be gauged. This 
successful attempt to learn popular senti- 
ment should be followed up when the ques- 
tion of dealing with the traction companies 
for an extension of .their various grants re- 
ceive final consideration. 

COMPENSATION FOR PRIVILEGES. 

In the past three years the principle of 
compensation for franchises has been firmly 
established. With the aid »f your Honorable 
Body all applicants for special privileges 
from the city have been forced to pay the 
city an adequate remuneration for what they 
have obtained. While the agggregate of 
meneys thus obtained has not been great, the 
establishment of the principal will be of in- 
calculable future benefit to the tax paying 
citizens. 

The following tables will show the advance- 
made by the City Government in this direc- 
tion :

WHERE ADDITIONAL COMPENSATION MAY BE 
OBTAINED. 

In a communicati©n I submitted to your 
Honorable Body September 25, 1899, I pointed 
out certain instances where public property 
was being used privately without the pay- 
ment of compensation, and where the pay- 
ment of adequate compensation, though it 
would entail but a small annual payment on 
each individual, would result in a great 
augmentation of the public revenues. I 



be taken up by the Finance Committee with 
a determination to bring about results. 

No franchise extension failing to recognize 
these five fundamental elements will or 
ought to satitfy the people of Chicago. They 
demand compensation for the use of the pub- 
lic highways, a reduction of the five-cent fare 
at least during the rusb hours of the morn- 
ing and evening, such accommodations as 
will put an end to the unhealthy, inexcusable 
and indecent crowding of cars du ing the

approval, and recognition of the people's ul- 
timate right to own and control all public 
utilities. While the people do not wish to 
drive an unfair bargain with the traction 
companies, they are absolutely and finally 
opposed to suffering unhealthy and indecent 
conditions that larger dividends may be 
earned by the stockholders of these compa- 
nies, to giving franchises without proper 
compensation, to paying a five-cent fare dur- 
ing the crowded hours, and to granting any 
extension of franchise that fails to contem- 
plate ultimate municipal ownership of the 
lines. 

One hears occasional criticism of the fail- 
ure of the present city administration to pass 
constructive street railway legislation. 
Whenever the traction companies are ready 
to take up a settlement of the question upon 
the foregoing lines constructive legislation 
may readily be had. Until they express a 
willingness to approach the question with 
due regard for the rights of the citizens, n© 
honest-minded critic can find fault with the 
city administration for its neglect to pass 
constructive legislation. 

DIRBCT LABOR FOR MUNICIPAL WORK. 

I am personally a believer in the theory 
that municipal work can be performed better 
and cheaper by the use of direct labor than 
by the generally prevailing contract system. 
In this connection permit me to call your at- 
tention to a communication I addressed your 
Honorable Body November 13, 1899, from 
which the following extracts are taken : 

"The favorite argument advanced against 
the performance of work by the city with 
direct labor is that the opportunity afforded 
the city administration of employing a 
large number of laborers would be utilized 
by it for political purposes. This is merely 
a hack argument and can best be answered 
by the statement that an administration seek- 
ing to use a work of importance to the gen- 
eral public for political ends would suffer 
more than it would gain. The best bid this 
or any other administration charged with the 
completion of an undertaking could make for 
public favor would be to do the work cheaply 
and well. Economy of administration as 
well as perfection of construction will be de- 
manded bv the public and neither end could 
be gained were the work prostituted to po- 
litical ends. Any attempt so to prostitute 
the work would merit the public's sharp con- 
demnation and receive it in full measure. 

"It may be urged the work can be per- 
formed cheaper by a contractor than by the 
municipality, because the contractor need 



ter service for the wage they receive. The 
city pays, it is true, the highest rate for labor 
of any employing body. The work would, 
therefore, cost the city more for actual labor 
employed than it would cost a contractor. 
This extra cost, however, would go into the 
pockets ©f the citizen who depends upon the 
earnings of his labor for his livelihood, for 
the support of his family in decent circum- 
stances as well as for the education and es- 
tablishment in life of his children. That 
this diversion of profits would be beneficial 
to the community at large cannot be ques- 
tioned. The city as an employing body, 
needing not to work for a profit, would pay 
out what would be the contractor's profit in 
higher wages to the citizens who would do 
the actual work. What would ordinarily be 
the profit of an individual contractor would 
thus become the profit of many. 

"In the old conditions the contractor could 
and did get better work out of his employes 
than the municipality, in spite of the fact 
that he paid less money for services ren- 
dered. This was the result of the method 
by which the public's employes were secured. 
In existing circumstances, without claiming 
any especial virtue for the present adminis- 
tration, this argument does not hold good. 
The city empioyes of today are hired by the 
Civil Service Board. In the majority of 
cases they are plain citizens, unknown to 
political fame, whose continued employment 
depends upon the efficiency of the services 
they render. Knowing their employment 
depends upon their industry and efficiency 
and being destitute of the -political pull' that 
is supposed to have held some of the city 
employes in their places in times past, they 
give to the municipality the best work of 
which they are capable. 

"The satisfactory manner in which these 
public works have been performed by the 
city under the direct labor system, satis- 
factory both in point of economy and good 
workmanship, proves beyond doubt the ad- 
visability of the municipality making its own 
improvements with direct labor. The city's 
engineers are of the best; they perform their 
duties with conscientious zeal, for good work 
under their direction advances them in their 
chosen profession. The men under them 
work industriously and in a good humor that 
springs from receiving good paj- for a good 
day's work. 

'•The persistence with which extras are de- 
manded and the ease with which they are ob- 
tained is the curse of the contract system. 
Let the city be its own contractor and there 
is no ionger advantage in picking out flaws 
and loopholes in the specifications, in employ- 
ing the ablest of attorneys to study each and 
every word of the contract to see if it cannoc 
be made to mean something it was not in- 
tended to mean, in resorting to illegal meas- 
ures for the purpose of working in extra 
claims, for fraud, bribery, deceit, and skull- 
duggerj r in general. Extra claims would 
produce no harvest of wealth for the munici- 
pality ; reduction of cost would "benefit the 



April 9,J 

Frauds in the cheapening of construction and 
the use of undesirable material would be to 
no ©ne's advantage except the material men 
and such frauds could be prevented by honest 
inspection. J 

"The scandals that are connected with 
every piece of contract work would be done 
away with and the public would not onlv get 
good workmanship but would know its im- 
provements were of the right character To- 
day the public looks askance at every piece 
of public work. Charges of corruption are 
bandied about from mouth to mouth and the 
average citizen is led to believe he never gets 
the good material and workmanship he is en- 
titled to in the improvements for which he 
pays his hard-earneorcash. 

"The public good demands the citizens 
should not only get what they pay for, but that 
they should know thev get it. Let the public 
confidence on this subject be undermined or 
destroyed and the results are far reaching 
1 he general public morals suffer from such 
charges. The honesty of the well-meaning 
citizen receives little eneouragement when he 
is forced to believe his officials, the sworn 
servants of the law he is taught to respect 
and obey, are either weak or corrupt These 
<marges, untrue as they may be in the vast 
majority of cases, will continue to spring up 
and spread as long as public work is prose- 
cuted by a system which makes it to the ad- 
vantage of a single individual to resort to the 
use of improper material and to tolerate poor 
workmanship for the purpose of increasing 
his profits. Official inspection will never be 
thoroughly reliable while the interest of a 
disnonest contractor is best subserved by the 
pres nee on the work of a dishonest in- 
spector." 

The progressive city of the future will 
have as one of its branches a Department of. 
Construction. All municipal work, with the 
exception of work that requires the use of 
expensive plants, will be performed by this 
department, and the contract system, being 
both high-priced and productive of poor 
workmanship, will be permanentlv aban- 
doned.

the so-called down town district by private 
persons is being made to-day: 

Square feet. 

Space under sidewalks 1,289,584 

Space under streets 42 959 

Space under alleys 73,657 

Space over streets and alleys 

(bridges) 5 m 



There is no more reason why a private citi- 
zen should occupy for his own purposes and 
without the payment of compensation space 
under city sidewalks, streets and alleys, than 
that a street railroad company should be per- 
mitted to make free use of the public high- 
ways. The principle involved is the same 
and it should be one of the first duties of 
your Honorable Body to take up this ques- 
tion and secure for the public the revenue to 
which it is rightfully entitled. The report 
of the Superintendent ®f Streets, submitted 



T@tal 1,411,947 

At the low average rate of 33>£ cents per 
square foot this space, if paid for, would 
yield the city an annual revenue of 1470,649. 

DEPARTMENT DETAILS. 

Those who desire to study the details of the 
working of the various departments of the 
city government will find in the reports of 
the department heads ample evidence of the 
successful manner in which the business of 
the municipality is conducted. 

COMPTROLLER'S OFFICE. 

The thoroughly business-like and success- 
ful manner in which the Comptroller's office 
has been managed is shown by the f®llowing 
facts : 

During the year 1899 the bonded indebted- 
ness of the city was reduced $91,900, and the 
permanent assets increased $3,322,209.46. 
Municipal bonds, seven per cents, were re- 
funded to the amount of $846,000, as follows: 

The $618,000 seven per cent bonds which 
fell due July 1, 1899, were refunded at 3% 
per cent, and sold at $106,076. 

The $228,000 seven per cent bonds which 
fell due September 1, 1899, were refunded at 
33^ per cent and sold at $106,120. 

These rates of premium were the highest 
ever obtained for Chicago city bonds, and the 
total premium received on the sale of these 
bonds was $51,502.96. These exchanges and 
redemptions will make an annual saving t® 
the city in interest of $33,060.50. 

The bonded debt now amounts t© $16,825,- 
050, and the annual interest on the bonded 
debt for the year 1899 was $681,267. 

Improvement bonds to the amount of 
$1,056,200 have been issued during the year, 
and improvement bonds to the amount of 
$693,600 have been paid during tVi« w»r Tm.

the Special Assessment Fund when assess-

During the year the sinking funds have 
been increased $478,193.35, of which 1304,- 



377.62 was sayed from interest account in- 
stead of being passed to the General Fund, 
and thus prevented its being used by the de- 
partments for current expenses. 



DEPARTMENT OF ELECTRICITY. 

If there is one department that deserves the attention of the public it is the Department of 
Electricity. The wonderful progress made cannot be better shown than in the following, 
taken from the report of City Electrician Ellicott: 

From an insignificant plant installed in 1887, and capable of furnishing 125 lights, the 
city has built up the svstem to its present capacity, and is now furnishing on the streets and 
public places a total of 3,502 2.000 candle-power lights, and has the further distinction of owning 
the largest municipal street lighting system in the world. It is surely something of which to- 
be proud, and those who have aided in the building up of this important public work can look 
back on their efforts with the greatest satisfaction. The economical results shown in the 
operation of the system will not prove disappointing to the most skeptical and form a most 
convincing argument for public ownership of such a necessity as street lighting. 

The following table shows the increase by years, and it will be seen that over twice as 
much has been accomplished in the last three years as in the previous ten years. The city has 
now invested in. the lighting system (including a heavy charge for real estate) only a little 
more than it formerly paid each year to private companies for lighting the streets.

TRACK ELEVATION. 

In the matter of track elevation, the pro- 
gress made has been equal to that of any 
former year since this important branch of 
work was undertaken. During the year 16.6 
miles of roadbeds of different railroad com- 
panies have been completed, which included 
the abolition of ninety-three crossings at 
grade. Ordinances have also been passed 
which provide for the elevation of 27.7 miles 
more of roadbeds, whieh elevation when 
completed will mean the abolition of ninety- 
seven more grade crsssings eliminated by 
subways. 

The following figures will give an idea of 
the work accomplished in track elevation 
since it was undertaken in 1892 to December 
81, 1899: 

During this period 51.80 miles of roadbeds 
have been elevated and 277 grade crossings 
abolished by subways. In conneetion with 
this work 58.28 miles of roadbeds have teeen 
depressed, dispensing with thirty-eight grade 
crossings, making a total of 318.89 miles of 
railroad tracks elevated and depressed and 
389 grade crossings eliminated. 

During the year 1899 ordinances were 
passed providing for the future elevation of 
27.7 miles of roadbeds and the elevation of 
143.86 miles of railroad tracks, and calling 
for the abolition of 135 grade crossings. 

When this proposed work shall have been 
completed there will be 79.50 miles of road- 
beds of different railroads elevated and 462.75 
miles of tracks elevated, and 524 grade cross- 
ings abolished at an expense to the city of 
less than the damages that would be sustained 
by the erection of any one viaduct and ap- 
proach under the old system of eliminating 
grade crossings. 

CITY COLLECTOR'S OFFICE. 

The amount of money collected for licences 
and special assessments by this department 
is given in the following statement: 

At the present time this department col- 
lects on 603 installment warrants. 193 of 
which were received since the last delinquent 
return to the County Collector, which run 
from five, seven to ten years, before same 
are fully paid up, and on 798 flat warrants 
(those that must be paid in one payment) 



During the fiscal year of 1899 the amount of 
$500,790.74 was collected from special assess- 
ments, and interest amounting to §17,039.99 
was received, and there were entered abate- 
ment vouchers amounting to §270,574.15. 
The delinquent l-eturn of special assessments 
to the County Collector, March 31, 1899, was 
$1,703,947.48, and the interest computed and 
returned on same was $184,835.68. 

The delinquent return for April 1, 1900, 
was $500,000 more than 1899, making the 
estimate about $2,200,000, and the estimated 
interest to be computed under two different 
special assessment laws will amount to $225,- 
000. There are 85 delinquent books to be re- 
turned to the County Collector April 1st this 
year, with over 11,000 pages of special assess- 
ment matter.

HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 

The report of the Health Commissioner 
shows that the past year has been one of 
constant growth and development in the 
work ©f the department, with the result that 
its record of achievement shows a closer 
touch with the people, and a consequent in- 
crease of the department's usefulness in 
conserving and protecting the public health. 

In the matter of abating smoke nuisances, 
the record of the bureau for the year shows 
9,520 plants inspected, 195 prosecutions and 
514 abatements.^ The scarcity of smokeless 
coal and the consequent inability of users of 
steam plants to obtain a good quality of fuel 
has to a degree interfered with the work of 
the department in enforcing the smoke ordi- 
nances, without going to extremes not war- 
ranted by common sense and a due regard 
for the city's industrial and business pros- 
perity. 

The progress made by the city in con- 
structing a sytem of intercepting sewers has 
already brought about an improvement in the 
city's water supply. Co-operating with this 
important work, the Commissiener of Health 
was impelled a few months ago to stop the 
dumping of contaminated dredgings into the 
lake. The action of the Commissioner, 
while it brought forth a storm of protests 
from interested contractors, backed up by 
the United States engineer at this port, was 
yet so clearly made imperative under his 
duty to protect the purity of the municipal 
water supply that retreat from his position 

Mtraa nut n-f +V.o r.,-,^^4.; » j. ii. _ _ _ 



conditions which followed and which still 
exists shows the gravity of the situation de- 
manded the action that was then taken. 
There are now no reasons for regretting the 
order, but rather to offer it as a point from 
which the people of Chicago can begin to 
date the improvement of their water supply, 
until by the full operation of the sanitary 
channel and the completion of the city's in- 
tercepting sewer system, it shall in both 
quantity and quality be unrivaled by any 
other city in the world. 

Since the reassembling of the children in 
the public schools in September last, scarlet 
fever and diphtheria have been epidemic in 
Chicago, and with a steady increase until the 
month of February of the present year. The 
marked decrease for the month named was 
due to the work of medical school inspection 
inaugurated by the Board of Education and 
conducted under the direction of the De- 
partment of Health. 

The fifty medical inspectors have done ex- 
cellent work in examining and excluding 
from attendance chilcren found suffering 
with any of the contagious diseases in mild 
form, and those not yet attacked but who 
had been exposed. To this alone must be 
credited the arrest of further spread ©f the 
epidemic, *and the gratifying decrease ®f 
cases reported for the months of February 
and March, as compared with these ©f De- 
cember and January, before this important 
work was thoroughly under way. 

CHICAGO'S FREE BATHS. 

According to available statistics Chicago 
seems to be the only city in the world pro- 
viding its citizens with absolutely free 
baths. The importance of affording citizens 
with the opportunity to enjoy free baths can- 
not be too strongly emphasized. In addition 
to the bathing facilities provided for in the 
past year at the various pumping stations 
where the warm water necessary for a bath 
is so readily to be had, Chicago has to-day 
two free bathing houses in active use as well 
as two others whose doors will soon be 
thrown open to the public; these are the 
Carter H. Harrison bath in the Nineteenth 
ward, the Martin B. Madden bath in the 
Fourth ward, Bath No. 3 in the Twenty- 
ninth ward, and the Robert A. Waller bath 
in the Eighteenth ward. I secured an ap- 
propriation of $10,000 in this year's appro-

located as to be available for the Fifteenth, 
Sixteenth and Seventeenth wards. 

The following figures give the number of 
baths given annually in those baths already 
open to the public. From these figures 
abundant evidence is obtained of the value 
of such conveniences to the public:

DEPARTMENT OF SUPPLIES. 

The report of the Business Agent shows 
that there were issued during the year 1899 
seventeen thousand three hundred forty-two 
(17.342) orders for materials, supplies and 
repair work, involving an expenditure of 
8615,969.14. As compared with business of 
the previous year there was an increase of 
one thousand fifteen (1,015) in the number 
of transactions, but a decrease of 876,231.57 
in the total sum expended. Thus it appears 
that while the work of the Department of 
Supplies increased in 1899 over the previous 
year as indicated by the number of purchases 
made, there was a substantial reduction in 
the amount of money disbursed. 

Current prices represent considerable ad- 
vances in the cost of materials and supplies 
in almost all lines as compared with the 
prices which prevailed a year ago. The ef- 
fect of these advances is to reduce appropria- 
tions for supplies in corresponding degree if 
the funds be measured by what they will buy. 
In this connection it may be noted that dur- 
ing the last year the warehouse of this de" 
partment realized an actual profit on account 

nf fnvnrnhlp nn rr>hflRp.s anfl suhsen npnt nH. 



fully covered the cost of its maintenance. 
The work of the Department of Supplies is 
organized on strict business lines: competi- 
tion insures right prices and the records of 
all transactions are complete and readily ac- 
cessible. 

The cost of maintaining the department in 
1899, including salaries, rent, equipment and 
all other expenses, was $14,622.18. During 
the same period the department received 
from the sale of scrap iron, old machinery 
and various waste materials the sum of 
$8, 577.79. An improved plan for collecting 
and disposing of old materials is now in oper- 
ation and increased reuenue from this source 
may be expected during the present year. 

BUREAU OF SPECIAL ASSESSMENTS. 

Improvement in the manner of conducting 
the Bureau of Special Assessments and the 
Board of Local Improvements is earning 
general commendation. 

During the past year the Board af Local 
Improvements considered at public hearings 
1871 resolutions far proposed improvements. 

One thousand and twenty-eight rolls were 
filed in court, representing assessments of 
86.754.639.06, ©f which S17 rolls were certified, 
amounting to 83,685.400.36. 

Objections were filed to only 16 per cent of 
the assessments and nearly one-fourth of 
these objections were filed by one lawyer and 
one real estate firm working in combination. 
The small percentage of objections filed is 
evidence that the acts of the Local Improve- 
ment Board have met the approval of the 
public. 

Nearly 8175.000 of old law warrants, due to 
property owners as rebates, are still unpaid, 
as the Comptroller reports that there is not 
sufficient money to the credit of these several 
warrants with which to pay them. 

Although the general operation of the Lo- 
cal Improvement Law is highly satisfactory, 
there are some matters contained therein 
which should be carefully considered and re- 
vised, and it is recommended that the proper 
authorities of the city arrange for a meeting 
with a committee to be appointed by the 
Real Estate Board and other interested or- 
ganizations, with a view of framing needed 
flmpnHmpnts to thft law. ro be submitted to

BUREAU OF STREETS. 

Considering the difficulties encountered, 
the Bureau of Streets has done excellent 
work during- the year. 

In addition to the work under construction 
at the close of 1898. there have been prepared 
fourteen lettings for street improvements, 
making- 210 contracts, amounting to $2,273,- 
030.34. 

Fortv-nine and twenty- four one hundredths 
miles of pavement were laid during the year, 
<«f which 11.91 miles were ®f asphalt and 
13.01 miles were of brick, and for the first 
time in the history of Chicago the cedar 
block pavement laid during the season was 
less by half than the mileage of old cedar block 
pavements replaced by pavements of a more 
durable character. 

One million one hundred and eighty-nine 
thousand nine hundred and seventy cubic 
yards of garbage and ashes were removed, at 
a cost of $.2384 per capita. 

The cost of street and alley cleaning and 
removal of garbage for the past year was 
$770,327,43, an average of $617.25 per mile of 
paved streets and of $416.17 per thousand of 
population. 

For the same purposes New York City ap- 
propriated in 1899, $5,476,088.00, an average 
of $3,922.69 per mile of paved streets and of 
$1,542.46 per thousand of population. 

Twenty thousand seven hundred and two 
notices of defective sidewalks were sent out 
after proper inspection, and 80 per cent of 
these were complied with and walks put in 
proper condition. 

A total of 246.07 miles of new sidewalks 
were constructed and 69.38 miles of sidewalks 
were repaired during the year, the largest 
mileage of any year in the history of 
Chicago. 

BUREAU OP SEWERS. 

The Bureau of Sewers has been admirably 
managed and shows splendid results in its re- 
port. 

During the past year 36.32 miles of sewers 
have been constructed at a total cost of $787 - 
323.28. 

Of the intercepting sewer system the open 

/>nf r\f +Via T o^».«„„„ , 



pumping station and outfall sewer from the 
station to the river. 

Section 3, from Surf street to Lawrence av- 
enue, has also been completed. 

Of the Thirty-ninth street sewer all but 
seventy-five feet of the open cut, and 2,566 
feet of tunnel, have been completed. 

As the Sanitary District will require a flow 
of 120,000 cubic feet per minute instead of 
40,000, as originally planned, the plans for 
the foundations of the Thirty-ninth Street 
punaping-station will have to be changed to 
meet the new requirements. 

The Senate, on March 14, 1899, passed a 
bill granting to the city a site for the pump- 
ing station on submerged lands at the foot of 
Thirty-ninth street. 

BUREAU OF ENGINEERING. 

The Bureau of Engineering shows a fine 
record in its report for the year. 

The work of reconstructing and remodeling 
the water works plants, commenced in 1897 
and 1898, was continued in 1899, and the 
various plants are now in better condition 
than they have been for many years 

A total of 10,000,000,000 gallons more water 
was pumped in 1899 than in 1898, showing an 
increase of 10 per cent in efficiency at a 
decreased cost for operation and maintenance 
of $28,837.60. 

There have been lowered during the year 
11.66 miles of water mains, in many cases 
larger pipe being substituted, thereby greatly 
improving the service and removing in the 
towns of Hyde Park, Lake View and Lake 
the cause of much trouble and inconvenience 
to the residents occasioned by frozen mains. 

Six thousand six hundred and seventy feet 
of 8-inch pipe has been laid in the lumber 
district, being the beginning of the high- 
pressure system for fire protection along the 
river. 

Total net addition to the water system dur- 
ing the year was 45.5 miles of pipe. 

The injunction which had tied up Section 3 
of the Northwest Land Tunnel was dissolved 
in June, 1899, and on July 8, the city took 
possession and prosecuted the work by day 



April 9, 



[1900 



to the city as compared to the amount claimed 
by the contractors. 

With the completion of the Carter H. Har- 
rison crib, Chicago has one of the most mod- 
ern and best equipped structures of its kind. 
The cost of this structure is $275,000 less 
than the four-mile crib, heretofore the most 
complete crib in use. 

The new conditions created in the Chicago 
harbor by the opening of the Drainage Canal 
will require a great amount of Work without 
delay. Docks should be rebuilt, center piers 
removed, tunnels lowered, and a general re- 
construction effected along the various 
branches of the river, the South Branch in 
particular. 

Lack of funds for necessary repairs neces- 
sitated the closing of several bridges during 
the year in order to prevent accidents to the 
public, and several other bridges are now in 
such a dilapidated condition that nothing 
short of complete reconstruction is advisable. 

CIVIL SERVICE. 

That the Civil Service Commission has not 
been idle during the past year is manifest 
from the following figures, taken from the 
Commissioners' annual report: 

During the year 5,270 official and 4,630 
labor applications have been filed, making 
a grand total of 9,900 applications filed dur- 
ing the year for positions in both official and 
labor service. 

Of the total number of original entrance 
examinations held during the past year, fifty- 
seven in all, forty were held for positions in 
the official service, and seventeen were held 
for positions in the skilled labor service. 
There have been three promotional examina- 
tions held during the year, as foilows: As- 
sistant engineers, Fire Department; thief 
draughtsmen, Map Department, and levelers 
and rodmeo to assistant engineers. The total 
number of candidates examined for promo- 
tion was seventy-six, of which number fifty- 
four were successful, or a little more than 
70.7 per cent. 

One thousand and seven hundred candi- 
dates were examined for positions in the offi- 
cial service (exclusive of 2,300 patrolmen >, and 
1.037 passed, or a fraction over 66 per cent. 

Four hundred candidates were examined 



erai corporation inspectors, which examina- 
tions have not yet been completed. 

The number of certifications for appoint- 
ment to positions in the official service was 
881; for positions in the labor service, 2,464 
making a total of 3,345 certifications made 
during the year. 

BUILDING DEPARTMENT. 

This department has been managed with 
carefulness and judgment and all the running 
expenses have been met out of the receipts, 
and this in the face ©f one @f the dullest 
years known in the building business. 

FIRE DEPARTMENT. 

The Fire Department has maintained during 
the year its splendid reputatien for efficiency. 
A new system of fire protection was in- 
augurate* by the laying of over a mile of 
eight-inch water mains in the "Lumber Dis- 
trict," communicating with the South Branch 
of the Chicago River, designed to be at- 
tached to the fire boat pumps in case ©f fire. 
The department responded to 7,811 -alarms, 
an increase of 1,230 over the previous year T 
and extinguished 6,031 fires, an increase of 
983 over the previous year, and 705 more than 
during any previous year. The total valua- 
tion ©f the property involved was $128,304,- 
413.00, which was insured for $70,851,165.00, 
and on which the total fire loss was $4,534,- 
065.00. 

POLICE DEPARTMENT. 

The efficiency of the Police Department 
has been tested and proved in a marked de- 
gree during the past year and in this con- 
nection it will not be amiss t© bear in mind 
the oft-repeated fact that Chicago has fewer 
policemen in proportion to its population 
than any of the large cities of the country. 
The following table proves this in an inter- 
esting way:

CORPORATION COUNSEL'S OFFICE. 

The Corporation Counsel has been signally 
successful in the management of his office 
uring the past year and has to his credit 
decisions of vast importance. One of the 
most notable is that in which the United 
States Supreme Court affirmed the judgments 
of the Supreme Court of Illinois and our 
Superior Court, restraining the Illin©is Cen- 
tral Railroad Company from constructing a 
roundhouse upon filled land on the lake 
front, and has again affirmed the title of the 
people of the State of Illinois to the made 
land along the shore of Lake Michigan. 

Another case of great importance is that in 
which the Appellate Court decided in favor 
of the city— Ciine vs. Harrison— affirming the 
judgment of the Circuit Court in denying a | 
writ of mandamus directing the Mayor to 
grant a license t© Cline to conduct a saloon 
at the premises corner Chicago and Dearborn 
avenues, the Mayor having previously refused 
such license because the premises were in a 
residence district. This court also affirmed 
the judgment in favor of the city, for $2,175, 
in the case of City vs. Chicago. Milwaukee and 
St. Paul Railway Company, et al., which de- 
cision was appealed by the defendants to the 
Supreme court, where it was again affirmed ; 
the liability of the railroads to reimburse the 
city for money paid to property owners for 
damages to property by the erection of via- 
ducts being thereby settled. 

CICERO WATER AND LIGHT. 

In the recently annexed district of Cicero, 
the city should acquire ownership of the 
water mains now owned by the Cicero Water, 
Gas and Electric Light Company, so as to 
prevent complications that may arise as the 
section becomes more thickly settled. 

The contract for fire protection in said dis- 
trict provides for payment to said company 
of $40 per hydrant per annum for the first 
hundred hydrants and 130 for all over that, 
payable semi-annually, and 10 cents per "M" 
gallons for water for flushing sewers. 

The City Engineer recommends the exten- 
sion of city's water mains into this district as 
soon as the city's means will permit. 

PLANS FOR SUBWAY SYSTEM. 

The congested condition of the business I 



section and the necessity for permanent pave- 
ments require the consideration of plans for 
a subway system to provide terminals for 
street railways and conduits for water, gas, 
sewer and electric service, that may be 
entered and maintained without removing 
the street pavements. A few years ago such 
an improvement would have been considered 
impracticable. The completion of the Boston 
subway and the authorization and beginning 
of work of constructing the underground 
railway in New York, to cost $35,000,000, 
justifies a most thorough investigation of this 
method of municipal improvements. I have 
had prepared and submit herewith tentative 
plans that will show what is possible of 
accomplishment in the business section of 
this city. Subways formed in loops free from 
grade crossings to accommodate every section 
of the city can be provided with terminals in 
the business section. It is argued by some 
that this improvement would retard the de- 
velopment of other portions of the city. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Carter H. Harrison, 



Mayor. 

Aid. Ailing moved that the same be pub- 
lished and placed on file, and that 10,000 
pamphlet copies be published. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Goldzier presented the following 
resolution : 

Resolved, by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago, that a committee of nine members 
of the City Council be appointed by the Chair 
to act with His Honor, the .Mayor, in all mat- 
ters pertaining to the matter of track eleva- 
tion within the corporate limits of said city. 
Such committee shall be known as "The 
Track Elevation Committee," and said Com- 
mittee shall make report to this Council from 
time to time as occasion may require. 

Which was on motion, duly adopted. 

Aid. Jackson presented the following or- 
dinance:

Department of Finance, j 
Chicago, 5th April, 1900. j 

To the Honorable, the Mayor and Aldermen 
in City Council Assembled: 

Gentlemen — You are respectfully advised 
that in accordance with the provisions of 
Sections 1341 to 1347, both inclusive, of Chap- 
ter 44 of the Revised Code, and in accordance 
with the provisions of the order of your Hon- 
orable Body entered March 5, 1900, Official 
Record, page 2570, advertisements were duly 
inserted in certain daily newspapers pub- 
lished in the City of Chicago, inviting pro- 
posals for th« publication in an English 
newspaper being published at least six times 
a week, of those matters and things required 



by law or any ordinance of the city to be pub- 
lished in a newspaper. 

Bids were duly received and opened on ac- 
count of the above advertisement, and the 
award has been made to the Chicago Daily 
Democrat, it being determined to be the low- 
est reliable and responsible bidder for such 
contract, in accordance with the provisions 
of Section 1343. 

Your approval of this award for the fiscal 
year 1900 is respectfully requested. 
Very respectfully, 

William D. Kereoot, 
Comptroller. 
Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 
William Schlake, 
Chairman Finance Committee. 

Which was referred to the Committee on 
Finance. 

The Clerk presented a statement of points 
for a contest by James A. Martin of the elec- 
tion of Frank L. Race as Alderman of the 
Thirty-fifth Ward, and an affidavit showing 
serviee of the same, which were 

Referred to the Committee on Elections. 

The City Electrician submitted the follow- 
ing communication, together with an ordi- 
nance : 

Chicago, April 9th, 1900. 

To the Honorable, the Mayor and the City 
Council, City Hall: 

Gentlemen— On March 7th the Depart- 
mene of Electricity advertised for bids for 
furnishing two vertical compound engines 
to be used for extending the municipal light- 
ing system. No bids were received on the 
date stated in the advertisement, and bids 
were immediately readvertised for. 

On April 2nd one bid was received for a 
special class of engine, but the price was pro- 
hibitive, amounting t© $42,500 for two engines. 

I enclose herewith a proposition from the 
Westinghouse, Church Kerr & Company for 
the furnishing to the City of Chicago either 
one, two or three engines, complete, set on 
foundations, at a cost of $11,400 each. 

I visited the place where these engines are 
manufactured and saw one in process of con- 
struction and one being tested, and they 



April 9,J 

were satisfactory in every respect. One en- 
gine can be finished in two weeks, ©ne engine 
in sixty days, and the third (if it is required) 
in ninety days. 

I am unable to find any other manufactur- 
ers in the country who can deliver the en- 
gines within five months time, which delivery 
would seriously delay the extension of the 
lighting system. As we have been unable to 
obtain competition on these engines, and the 
time of delivery is so valuable, I would rec- 
ommend that the Council award the contract 
for the engines at the price named, giving the 
Department the privilege of accepting a sec- 
ond and third engine if circumstances re- 
quire them to be used. 

I hope the matter can be taken up without 
reference to a committee, for the reason that 
any delay in the acceptance of the proposition 
will increase the time of delivery and per- 
haps make it impossible to secure the first 
engine, and it is very necessary that it should

The following is the ordinance as passed : 
Whereas, The Department of Electricity 
is desirous of purchasing and installing one 
or more engines to be used for the purpose of 
extending the municipal lighting system; 
and 

Whereas, Said Department advertised for 
bids for the furnishing to the city of two 
vertical compound engines to be used for 
such purpose, and no bids were received as a 
result of such advertisement upon the date 
set in said advertisement for said bids to be 
opened; and 

Whereas, Upon a readvertisement but one 
bid was received for a special class ©f engine, 
the price of which was prohibitive, amount- 
ing to forty-two thousand five hundred 
($42,500.00) dollars for two engines ; and 

Whereas, Since the date last set in said 
advertisements for the opening of bids the 
Westinghouse, Church, Kerr & Co, have 
sent a proposition to the Department of 
Electricity proposing to furnish to the City 
of Chicago one, two or three engines, as may 
be desired, complete, and set on foundations, 
at a cost ©f eleven thousand four hundred 
($11,400.00) dollars each ; and 

Whereas, The City Electrician has ex- 
amined said engines, tested same, and found 
them to be of such design and construction 
as will be satisfactory for the purposes for 
which said engines are intended to be used ;, 
and 

Whereas, The said proposal of said 
Westinghouse, Church, Kerr & Co., under 
date of April 9, 1900, has a time clause therein 
providing that same shall # be null and void 
unless accepted within fifteen (15) days from, 
the date thereof ; and 

Whereas, Great difficulty may be encoun. 
tered in securing said engines and in procur- 
ing the delivery of same within a reasonable 
time if the said proposition is- not at once 
accepted ; now, therefore,.

ALSO, 

The following communication: 

Mayor's Office, \ 

April 23d, 1900. j 

To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen— For some years past it has 
been the custom in appointing the Mayor's 
Special Committee on Track Elevation to 
name two Aldermen from the North Side, 
four from the South Side and three from the 
West Side. As no tracks on the North Side 
are to be elevated in the near future, and as 
members of the Track Elevation Committee 
should come from districts where track ele- 
vation is in contemplation, it has seemed best 
to me to vary the old programme this year 
and name only one Alderman from the 
North Side. I would therefore name the fol- 
lowing Aldermen as members of the Mayor's 
Special Committee on Track Elevation: 

Aid. Goldzier, Chairman, 

Aid. Jackson,

To the Honorable Mayor and the City Council 
of the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen— On the 2nd day of Decem- 
ber, 1897, your Honorable Body passed an 
ordinance eutitled " An ordinance requiring 
the Chicago and Northwestern Railway Com- 
pany and the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. 
Paul Railway Company, respectively, to 
change the plane of certain of their road- 
beds and railway tracks within the City of 
Chicago," which said ordinance was amended 
on December 29th, 1897; and also ©n the 21st 
day of February, 1898, your Honorable Body 
passed an ordinance entitled "An ordinance

Paul Railway Company, and the Chicago and 
Northwestern Railway Company, respect- 
ively, and to elevate the plane of certain ©f 
their railway tracks within the City of Chi- 
cago," which said ordinance was amended 
on May 23rd, 189S. 

Both of the above ordinances, as amended, 
were in due time accepted by the two rail- 
way companies named therein. Inasmuch 
as all the work required to be done by this 
company, in both of the above ordinances, 
has been completed as required by said ordi- 
nances and all the requirements of said ordi- 
nances have been complied with by it, this 
company respectfully requests an acceptance 
by the City of Chicago of the same, to the 
end that the provisions of Section eleven 
(11) in each of said ordinances, passed De- 
cember 2nd, 1897, and February 21st, 1898, 
may be declared now operative and be fully 
enforced; and this company therefore re- 
quests the passage by your Honorable Body 
of the following resolution: 

"Whereas, All the work required to be 
done by the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul 
Railway Company, under an ordinance 
passed by this Council on December 2d, 1897,

and Northwestern Railway Company, and 
the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Rail- 



way Company, respectively, to change the 
plane of certain of their roadbeds and railway 
tracks within the City of Chicago,' which 
was amended by this Council December 29th, 
1897; and also under an ordinance of the 
City of Chicago, passed by this Council on 
February 21st, 1898, entitled l An ordinance 
requiring the elevation of the roadbed and 
tracks of the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. 
Paul Railway Company and the Chicago and

tively, and to elevate the plane of certain of 
their railway tracks within the City of Chi- 
cago,' which was amended by this Council on 
May 23d, 1898, has been fully completed by 
said company, as required by said ordinances, 
and all the requirements of said ordinances 
have been fully complied with by said com- 
pany ; now, therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the City of Chicago hereby 
accepts said work, and declares that all of the 
provisions ©f Section eleven ill) in each of 
said ordinances are in full force and effect as 
to the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul 
Railway Company."

Gentlemen— I herewith submit for your 
information an ordinance authorizing the

duits, manholes, lateral connections and 
other parts of the city conduit system as may

tended with a view to future needs, and, at 
the present time, contain space which is not 
now necessary for municipal purposes; and 

Whereas, Various persons and corpora- 
tions are constantly making- application for 
space in such conduits, and are willing to 
pay fair compensation to the city for the use 
of such space; and 

Whereas, The leasing of such space in 
city conduits as is not required by the city 
will tend to decrease the number of street 
openings made, and will decrease to that ex- 
tent and mitigate the evil ®f constantly tear- 
ing up improved streets, and, at the same

thereof, by any lessee, shall not interfere with 
the use of such conduits for municipal 
purposes.

The Commissioner of Public Works sub- 
mitted the following communication: 

Department of Public Works, [ 
Chicago, April 23, 1900. \ 

To the Honorable, the Mayor and the City 
Council: 

Gentlemen — Referring to your resolution 
of April 4th, that the Board of Local Im- 
provements report t© your Honorable Body 
through its Chairman, the Commissioner of 
Public Works, what, if any, further acti@n 
has been taken regarding the improvement of 
100th street, etc., I beg to transmit herewith 
report of the Secretary of the Board of 
Local Improvements with reference to same. 

Very respectfully, 

L. E. McGann, 
Commissioner of Public Works. 

Board of Local Improvements, ) 
Chicago, April 20th, 1900. I 

Hon. L. E. McGann, Commissioner of Pub- 
lic Works: 

Dear Sir — In response to yours of April 
14th, concerning the Council order regard- 
ing the improvement of 100th street, in 
which they ask what further action has been 
taken regarding this improvement, and if 
nothing has been done, the reason therefor, 
received. Permit me to submit the follow- 
ing: 

This is a condemnation proceeding for the 
opening of this street through certain prop- 
erty and also crosses the river. No bridge is 
there at the point ®f this proposed opening, 
nor has any provision been made for such a 
bridge by the City Council. 

Therefore under the decision of the Su- 
preme Court in the case of Hutt vs. the City 
of Chicago for the opening of Canal street, 
an assessment for the opening of this street 
would never be successful until some pro- 
vision was made for a bridge at this point. 

The Board has therefore deemed it ad- 
visable to delay the proceedings without 
putting the city to any further expense in 
the matter until such time as some provision 
is made for bridging the river. 
Yours very truly, 

John A. May, 
Secretary Board of Local Improvements. 
Which was placed on file. 



The Board of Local Improvements sub-

Whereas, A great number of complaints 
are continually made about the effect of the 
special assessment law and its unjust de- 
mands, compelling owners of property to pay 
interest on deferred installments from the 
date of confirmation of assessments in the 
County Court, when in fact w@rk is not 



[1900 



begun for six months to one year, and in 
some instances for a longer period of time, 
after confirmation has taken place; also 
requiring that interest on deferred install- 
ments and installments due, must be paid for 
something like one year in advance ; 

Whereas, In fact, interest should not be 
charged until the work is completed and 
accepted by the city; and, 

Whereas, The intent of the law is good, 
but is in a great number of cases imprac- 
ticable and achieves directly the opposite of 
what was intended, that is to protect the tax- 
payer; and, 

Whereas, The said assessment law should 
be amended in the case of repairing and 
building of new sidewalks so as to avoid the 
great loss of time ; therefore be it 

Resolved, That the Board of Local Im- 
provements be and they are hereby ordered

and that the City Comptroller is hereby di- 
rected to set aside from the appropriation of

Ernst F. Herrmann, 

Chairman. 



The same Committee, to whom was re- 
ferred a communication from the Board of 
Education in relation to sundry school sites, 
together with opinion of Corporation Counsel 
concerning powers of Board of Education, 
submitted a report recommending that the 
same be published and placed on file. 

Aid. Herrmann moved to concur in the 
report. 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the communication : 

February 12, 1900. 

To the Honorable Henry F. Eidmann, J. T. 
Russell and Kinney Smith: 

Gentlemen — The communication from 
your Honorable Committee, addressed to 
Mr. Graham H. Harris, President of the 
Board of Education, has been referred to me 
by Mr. Harris with the request to answer the 
same in detail. I have the honor to submit 
the following in reply thereto: 

Question 1. '"Purchase of a site for the 
relief of the Polk Street School District and 
the erection of an eighteen-room school build- 
ing on said site, at an estimated cost of $85,- 
000, is indefinite in failing to show, first, 
whether this amount is intended to cover 
both sites and buildings. Second, what is the 
location and dimension of the site? Third, 
whether the building is to be fire-proof or 
otherwise."' 

Answer. The communication of December 
16, 1899, referred to contains verbatim the 
report of the Committee on Buildings and 
Grounds, but the latter part of the report is 



April 33,J 



109 



[1900 



evidently overlooked by your Honorable 
Committee. This portion of the report reads 
as follows : 

"The above is exclusive of the cost of new 
sites for the following: 

"Site for Eighteenth Street School Dis- 
trict. 

"Site for Harrison School Addition. 

"Site for Talcott School Addition. 

"Site for Maxwell and Desplaines Street 
School Districts. 

"Site for Polk Street School District. 

"Site adjoining Cooper School building." 

No recommendation could properly be 
made to the City Council for a site because 
the Board of Education did not renew its 
recommendation for March 22, 1899, or sub- 
stitute another. It is not the custom of the 
Board. of Educatio i to ask the order of the 
City Council for the purchase of a site unless 
the location, size and estimated cost can be 
given. It has not been customary to state in 
the request for authority to erect a new 
building whether it is to be fire-proof or not, 
but this information can readily be given. 

Question 2. "Where an appropriation for 
a building is asked the Committee desires to 
know whether or not the city already owns 
the site, and. if s®, where it is located and its 
dimensions. In these matters the informa- 
tion given us is very meagre." 

Answer. When a request has been made 
for the erection of a new building on a site 
to which the city has at the time a title the 
location of the site only is contained in the 
request, and if an addition t© an old building, 
or addition 1 building on an old site, there- 
quest is only stated by the name of the 
school site on which the old building is 
located. Information as to size of un- 
occupied portions of such sites can be given 
if desired by the Committee. 

Request 1. "That a separate request be 
made for each building to be erected?" 

Reply. This has been the universal cus- 
tom and is adhered to in the communication 
of December 16, 1899, although it would ap- 
pear that your Committee has treated it as 
one request and not as several combined in 
one request. It is not customary to com- 
bine so many .requests in one, but the action 
of the Board of Education was taken in this 
particular instance that as little delay as pos- 
sible might be had after authority of the City 
Council had been obtained, in advertising for 



and awarding contracts. And further that 
the Committee on Schools might elect which 
©f the several requests were most urgent and 
worthy of approval. 

Request 2. "That there be stated in each 
case whether it is contemplated to make the 
proposed building fire-proof, semi-fire-proof, 
or otherwise. What amount is proposed to 
be used therefor and whether the site has 
been procured and what is its exact loca- 
tion?" 

Reply. Some of the information asked for 
as above is always given in the request of the 
Board of Education for authority, the omis- 
sion of the fire-proof ®r other character of 
the proposed building being the only one 
noted. 

Request 3. "That a separate request be 
made for each and every site to * be pur- 
chased, stating the exact location and the 
amount to be paid." 

Reply. This information has always been 
given. 

Requests kW That a separate request be 
made for each and every appropriation in 
lieu of the amounts already appropriated 
with the name of the school for such appro- 
priation as made." 

Reply. These conditions have been ad- 
hered in all respects heretofore. 

Question 1. "What sum of money will be 
at your disposal for the current year for sites 
and buildings, and other matters requiring 
concurrence by the City Council?" 

Reply. For school sites, $100,000.00; for 
new buildings, $ 1,000,000.00. 

Question 2. "Do you use money or make 
appropriations for the repair of school houses 
without the concurrence of the City Coun- 
cil? " 

Reply. The Board of Education is not 
required under the school law to obtain the 
consent of the City Council for repairs, but is 
required to take charge ©f the school houses, 
including grounds and other property adjoin- 
ing the school districts, and see that the same 
is kept in good condition and not to suffer 
unnecessary injury. 

Question 3. "Do you leafce sites for school 
houses or necessary grounds without the con- 
currence of the City Council?" 

Reply. The Board of Education leases 



April 23,J 



110 



[191 



buildings in some cases, including the 
grounds, and in other cases only part of the 
building is rented as branches, as in such 
cases provided for in the school law. without 
concurrence of the City Council. 

The following is the statement made by the 
architect of the Board in reply to my request 
for detailed informatio i pertaining to the 
erection and construction of additions and 
new school buildings for the ensuing year: 

•• In the report of the Committee on Build- 
ings and Grounds, passed by the Board. 
December 33. 1S99. many of the requests are 
somewhat indefinite, that is. sites have got to 
be procured before we know what the dimen- 
sions will be. but we do know that school 
buildings being built very similar to each 
other, we can make our estimate per class- 
room, and knowing the number of rooms, we 
can make very close, indeed, an approximate 
estimate by multiplying the number of class- 
rooms by the amount, which figures, taken on 
the schools let, would show. Several of the 
buildings in this report are included in the 
report of March S of the same year, but on 
account of the rise in prices have been laid 
over waiting for an additional appropriation 
to be granted by the City Council. We have 
the plans all ready, and could advertise to- 
morrow if we had the authority. 

•■ The schools that we have plans all readv 
for. or partially so. and could be completed in 
a short time, and requiring this additional 
appropriation are as follows: 

" Irving Park District: Site owned by the 
city, located 42d court and McCollom street: 
size of lot -247.25 by 155.69. This .building is 
intended to be one-half of a twenty-four room 
building. The additional twelve rooms to.be 
completed in the future, as the district is 
growing rapidly, and the twelve rooms now 
contemplated will be filled at once from five 
small branch schools in the neighborhood. 
Appropriation was passed by the City Coun- 
cil for $45,000; to this $45,000 we ask 130,000, 
making the total $65,000. 

"Auburn Park Addition : Site owned by 
the city: located on Butler street, between 
TV est >0th and Slat streets: has a frontage of 
126 feet and a depth of 265.4 feet. There is 
in front of the present building a vacant 
space of 56 feet which it is proposed to util- 
ize in the erection of the addition and also to 
use approximately 105 feet frontage of the 
adjoining vacant lot. wnich was purchased in 



1S95. This is to be a 12-room addition to the 
present Auburn Park School building. The 
former appropriation of the City Council 
was 150,000; to this we must have $20,000 
more, making a total of $70,000. 

"Avondale School Addition : Site owned by 
the city : located on southeast corner [North 
Sawyer avenue and West Wellington street: 
size of lot 397.25 by 123.25 feet. There is 
about 240 feet of this site south of the present 
building vacant upon which it is proposed to 
erect the addition. This is to be an lS-room 
addition to the present school. Former ap- 
propriation 185,000; we ask for $5,000 more, 
making a total of -590.000. 

■'Laurel Avenue and 33rd Court: Site 
owned by the city : located at 33rd place, be- 
tween Auburn avenue and South Morgan 
street; size of lot 176 by 145. S feet. This is 
to be an lS-room building. Former appro- 
priation $70,000: we new ask $20,000 more, 
making a total of $90,000. 

"Fifty-third street and Spaulding avenue: 
Site owned by the city. Size of lot 250 by 
124.47 feet. This is to be an eight-room 
building. Former appropriation $35,000; 
now ask for $5,000 additional, making a total 
of $40,000. 

"Calumet Avenue, between 41st and 
42d streets: Site owned by the city: 
has a frontage of 195 feet and a depth of 128 
feet. This is to be a 22-room building. 
Former appropriation $S0.000: we now ask 
for $30,000 more, making a total of $110,000. 

"Fernwood School District: Site owned by 
the city: located at northeast corner of Union 
avenue and 101st street: size of lot 19S.4 by 
125.19 feet. This is to be a nine-room build- 
ing. Appropriation $45,000. passed by the 
Board and City Council. There is no further 
appropriation requested for this building. 

"Carter H. Harrison School: A 12-reom 
addition. Appropriation $70,000. The Board 
recommended to the City Council recently 
the purchase of a site for this addition. We 
do not require any additional appropriation 
above the $70,000 for this building. 

"Dore School: Site owned by the city. A 
12-room addition located on Harrison street, 
commencing 103.2 feet east of Halsted street. 
Size of lot 250 by 111 feet. Mason contract for 
which was let last fall and the foundations 
are now on. Former appropriation $50,000. 



April 23,] 

W© now require 115,000 more, making a total 
of $65,000. 

"Many of the above schools are ready to 
advertise for bids, of the others plans are 
well under way. We cannot go ahead until 
we have the additional appropriations passed 
by the City Council and it is very urgent that 
they be obtained at the earliest possible 
moment. 

"With regard to the question of fire proof 
schools— all our new buildings are now con- 
structed along what might be termed semi-fire- 
proof materials. Our boiler houses and steam 
plants, coal houses, etc., are placed in sep- 
arate buildings shut off from the main build- 
ing, so that there is no fire whatever in the 
schools. All the corridors are built abso- 
lutely fire-proof. Ail our staircases are of 
iron; platforms of same. Our class rooms 
are built of semi-fire-poof construction ; our 
cross patitions are built of tile ; terra blanca 
or macholite being non-combustible. Our 
heating and ventilating ducts are of iron; 
connections in non-combustible partitions, 
so that there is very little risk from fire iii 
our buildings as now being built. To build 
our buildings absolutely fire-proof through- 
out would require an additional twenty-five 
per cent over and above what we are asking 
for. 

"The following list is for schools that are 
intended m districts where, up to the present, 
the Board does not own any site. Site will 
have to be purchased exclusive of the appro- 
priations asked for the buildings: 

"Polk Street School District; an eighteen- 
room building. Appropriation asked for 
$85,000. 

^ ''Eighteenth Street School District, for re- 
lief, a twenty-two-room building. Appro- 
priation required for the building, $110,000. 

"Talcott School addition; a twelve-room 
addition. Appropriation required for build- 
ing, $60,000. 

"A twenty-two room building for the re- 
lief of the Foster, Washburne, Garfield and 
John M. Smyth Schools. Appropriation 
asked for, $110,000. 

_ "The above list required the purchase of a 
site for the building in each case. 

"The following list contains new buildings 
passed by the Board where we now own the 
sites : 

"A twenty-two-room building, with assem- 



1 1 1 [1900 

bly hall, for Belle Plaine School. Appro^ 
priation required, $110,000. 

"A twelve-room addition to the John Mar- 
shall School. Appropriation required. 
$60,000. 

A twenty-six room build i ng, corner 53d and 
Loomis. Appropriation required, $130,000. 

"An eighteen-room building, with assem- 
bly hall, on the site Eighty-third Street 
School. Appropriation required, $100,000. 

"In addition to the above, the Committee 
recommended the purchase of a site adjoin- 
ing the Cooper School, and the fitting up ©1 
a flat building on the premises for temporary 
quarters for the purpose of accommodating 
pupils. Up to the present time, we have 
made no examinations of this flat building 
and cannot state definitely how much will be 
required to make it tenable for school pur- 
poses. 

"I would request that the importance of 
the requests for additional appropriations for 
the schools that we have plans and specifica- 
tions already completed be passed as soon as 
possible, as we are practically at a standstill. 
We cannot build the buildings with the money 
already appropriated, and as 1 understand it, 
the Committee on Schools of the City Coun- 
cil do not wish us to advertise and let con- 
tracts where the school overruns the appro- 
priation many thousands of dollars. As they 
have suggested that they would rather 
pass appropriations for new buildings, 
separately, taking up each individual 
case, it might be. well in order to help matters 
along if the chairman of the Committee on 
Buildings and Grounds and the Architect 
could appear before the Council Committee 
on Schools in session and take up each indi- 
vidual case." 

I beg to add hereto that I shall suggest to 
Mr. Harris, President of the Board, that the 
communication from the Board dated De- 
cember 16, 1899, to the City Council, be with- 
drawn and your suggestions that a distinct 
and separate request be made for each build- 
ing, or addition to building, to be erected, be 
complied with. Also as to the purchase of 
sites, together with such information as yocr 
Committee may desire. 

Assuring you ©f my readiness t® serve yoa 
at any time, 1 am 

Very respectfully yeurs, 

Louis C. Legner, 

Secretary.

Office of the ) 

Counsel to tub Corporation, > 

March 2, 1900. ) 

Jfessrs. Henry F. Eidmann, Kinney Smith 
•arid J. T. Russell, Subcommittee of Com- 
mittee on ScJiools of City Council, Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Your communication of the 
19th inst. has been referred to me by the 
Corporation Counsel for a reply. You ask 
that this Department answer the following 
questions for the Committee on Schools: 

1. Whether Sections 21, 25 and 26 of Ar- 
ticle VI., of the Act ©n Schools, as amended 
in 1899, apply to our Board of Education, 
and if so. can such Board make repairs of 
school buildings or let contracts for such re- 
pairs, or lease sites lor school houses or sites 
with buildings for school purposes, without 
the concurrence of the City Council. 

2. Has the Board of Education the power 
Xinder the statute to let contracts into thou- 
sands of dollars, such as, for instance, for 
rooSngr, fencing, plumbing, steam titting, 
cement sidewalks, calcimining and painting 
school houses, without the concurrence of 
the City Council, any more than it can not 
put up a building involving no larger amount 
without such concurrence; and is it safe for 
the Comptroller to honor vouchers drawn for 
such work when the City Council has not 
concurred? 

In reply to your first question I beg to say 
that Sections 21, 25 and 26 of Article VI. of 
the Act on Schools, as provided by Section 
17 of said article, apply to the Board of Edu- 
cation of the City of Chicago. (See Section 
17, Article VI. School Act, Hurd's Revised 
Statutes, 1899 Ed., p. 1549.) Section 21 of 
this act provides: 

"The said Board of Education sha 1 have 
charge and control of the public schools in 
such cities, and shall have power, with the 
concurrence of the City Council: 

"1. T® erect or purchase buildings suitable 
for school houses, and keep the .same in re- 
pair. 

"2. To buy or lease sites for school houses, 
with the necessary grounds * * *. 

"3. To issue bonds for the purpose of 
building, furnishing and repairing school 
houses * * *." 

Section 22 of this act provides: 
"The said Board of Education shall have 
power: 



"1. To furnish schools with the necessary 
fixtures, furniture and apparatus. 

"2. To maintain, support and establish 
schools * * *. 

"3. To hire buildings or rooms for the use 
of the Board. 

"4. To hire buildings or roois for the use 
of schools. 

******** 

"7. To lay off and divide the city into 
school districts, and from time to time to 
alter the same and create new ones, as cir- 
cumstances may require, and generally to 
have and possess ail the rights, powers and 
authority required for the proper manage- 
ment of schools, with power to enact such 
ordinances as may be deemed necessary and 
expedient for such purpose." 

Section 23 of said act provides : 

"It shall be the duty of such Board of Ed- 
ucation : 

"1. To take the entire superintendence 
and control of the schools. 

"6. To take charge of the school houses, 
furniture, grounds and other property be- 
longing to the school districts, and see that 
the same are kept in good condition, and not 
suffered to be unnecessarily injured or de- 
teriorated. 

"7. To provide fuel and such other neces- 
saries for the schools as in their opinion may 
be required in the school houses or other 
property belonging to the said district-'." 

l Section 28 of said act provides: 

•'All schools in such cities shall be gov- 
erned as hereinbefore stated, and no power 
given to the Board of Education shall be ex- 
ercised by the City Council of such city." 

All powers of the Board of Education are 
found in the statute and the Board has no 
p@wers other than those prescribed by the 
statute. It is therefore clear, in accordance 
with the terms of Section 21 above quoted, 
that repairs of school buildings and contracts 
for such repairs and the leasing ©f sites for 
school houses must be made with the con- 
currence of the City Council. Bearing in 
mind Clause 3 of Section 22, and Section 28 
aforesaid, it is clear that the Board of Edu- 
cation has the right, without the concurrence 
of the Council, to hire buildings for the use 
of schools. It follows that if a site and a 
building for a school house are leased to- 



April 23, J. 



113 



[1900 



gether, the concurrence of the Council must 
be had to so much of the lease as relates to 
the site. 

Answering- your second question, I beg- t® 
state that while it is immaterial uncle the 
statute what the amount of the contract i r 
contracts may be, still if such contracts as 
you mention are for the repair of school 
buildings, then the Board of Education 
should have the concurrence of the City 
Council before they are let. If the con- 
tracts relate to furnishing schools with 
the necessary fixtures, furniture and ap- 
paratus, or to the maintenance, support and 
establishment of schools, or to the keeping 
in good condition of school furniture or 
grounds, then it is not necessary to have the 
concurrence of the Council. 

It is clear from Section 21 that the City 
Council must concur in all measures for the 
repair of schoolhouses, but there is nothing 
which requires the City Council's concur- 
rence in measures for the repair of school 
furniture or grounds. 

I do not think there is any real conflict be- 
tween the first clause of Section 21 of the 
act and the sixth clause of Section 23. In 
the case of any particular contract it ought 
to be easy to determine whether or not the 
concurrence therein of the Councitis required 
by law. 

Yours respectfully, 

Roswell B. Mason, 
Asst. Corporation Counsel. 
Approved : 

Charles M. Walker, 

Corporation Counsel.

The said sidewalk shall be constructed as 
follows, viz. : A foundation shall first be pre- 
pared by cutting- down or filling up the nat- 
ural surface of the ground to within eight 
and one-half inches below the grade, which 
foundation shall consist of the surface of the 
ground as above prepared, upon which shall 
fee laid a layer of cinders four inches in depth. 
On the foundation thus prepared there shall 
be placed a layer of hydraulic cement con- 
crete, four inches in thickness, composed of 
one part of cement, equal in quality to the 
best Portland cement, and two parts of the 
best, clean, coarse sharp sand. After mixing 
said cement and sand dry, five parts of 
broken stone crushed to a size so as to pass 
through a ring of two and one-half inches 
intern al diameter, shall be added thereto, and 
then water added in sufficient quantity as 
will give surplus of moisture when rammed. 
Before the layer last described has set, a 
layer, or finishing coat, shall be placed 
thereon one-half inch in thickness, to be 
made of one part of cement, equal in quality 
to the best Portland cement, and one part of 
torpedo gravel. 

Said sidewalk shall be laid to the grade of 
said Carroll avenue, between said points, 
which grade is hereby established as follows, 
to-wit : 

Intersection of North 43rd avenue, 25.75 
feet above datum. 

Intersection of North 44th avenue, 26 feet 
above datum. 



Intersection of North 45th avenue, 27 feet 
above datum. 

Intersection of the Belt Railway ©f Chi- 
cago, 27 feet above datum. 

The above heights, as fixed, shall be meas- 
ured from the plane of low water in Lake 
Michigan, of A. D. 1847, as established by 
the Trustees of the Illinois and Michigan 
Canal, and adopted by the late Board of 
Drainage Commissioners, and by the late

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City 

of Chicago: 

In compliance with the order of the Coun- 
cil for an opinion "as to the validity of 
surety bonds furnished by street paving con- 
tractors, and whether the surety companies

under these bonds can be legally compelled 
to keep newly paved streets in repair for a 
period of — say, ten years, when such bonds 
are given for such term and purpose," the 
following is respectfully submitted: 

Where the cost of a street pavement is to 
be paid by special assessment, the 82nd Sec- 
tion of the Local Improvements Act requires 
the contractor to give a bond to secure the 
performance of his contract. Prior to the 
passaere of said act, an ordinance of the 
Council provided for the taking of such a 
bond from the contractor. (Revised Code of 
Chicago, 1897, Section 1623. j 

Both under said ordinance, and under said 
act, the practice ©f the city has always been, 
and is now, to insert in the paving contract 
certain clauses which, as interpreted by the 
majority of the courts who have had occa- 
sion to pass upon substantially similar 
•clauses, constitute — first, an express war- 
ranty by the contractor that the material 
used by him will be so good, and the work- 
meu employed will be so skillful, that the 
pavement put down will stand ordinary wear 
and will last a certain specified period, not 
exceeding the natural life of the kind of 
pavement specified, and will not get out of 
order during such period; and, second, an 
appendant covenant, that if the pavement 
does get out of order during the time specified, 
because of poor material or workmanship, 
the contractor, at his own expense, will make 
such repairs as are necessary to put the pave- 
ment in good order. The bond taken is to 
secure the faithful performance ©f the entire 
contract, including, of course, said warranty 
of durability, and said covenant to repair. 

It is herein assumed, but not affirmed, that 
under its charter the city has no power to 
raise money by special assessment to pay the 
cost of maintaining and repairing a street 
pavement. 

As against property owners liable to assess- 
ment to pay the cost of laying a pavement, 
such warranty, covenant and bond are legal 
and valid. But if such property owners can 
and do show by evidence, that in point of fact 
the price charged by the contractor for lay- 
ing the pavement was increased because of 
the insertion in his contract of such warranty 
•of durability and covenant to repair, then, at 
least to the extent of the amount ©f such 



proved increase in price, the assessment is 
invalid. While it is legal and proper to take 
such warranty, covenant and bond from a 
contractor, it is neither legal nor proper to 
force the property owner by special assess- 
ment to pay the contractor for giving them; 
first, because the use of good material and 
the employment of skillful workmen is im- 
plied in any paving contract and a con- 
tractor is not entitled to pay for expressly 
agreeing to do what he would have to do 
anyway ; and, second, on the assumption as 
to the power of the city as above stated, be- 
cause the property owners are liable to as- 
sessment to pay only for laying the pave- 
ment and are not liable to assessment to pay 
for keeping it in good order after it is once 
laid. 

As against the contractor and the surety on 
his bond, the warranty ©f durability, the 
covenant to repair, and the bond are valid 
and enforceable, whether the contractor, be- 
cause of being required to give them, 
increased the price charged for laying the 
pavement, or not. If he did so increase the 
price, the amount of such increase, when 
taken from the property owners by special 
assessment necessarily goes to the contractor, 
and pays him in advance to keep his work in 
order for the period specified, and when the 
contractor is called upon to perform his 
warranty and covenant, neither he, nor his 
surety, can be permitted to say that the 
money paid to the contractor in advance was 
not raised legally. 

Should a contractor, bound by such a war- 
ranty of durability and by such a covenant to 
repair, refuse or neglect to make the repairs 
called for by the covenant, on being notified 
by the city so to do, the city could not compel 
the surety on the contractor's bond t© ac- 
tually undertake the work. The right of the 
city would be either to make the repairs at its 
own expense and to collect the amount paid 
out therefor from the contractor and his 
surety, or to sue the contractor and his 
surety on the bond, without making any re- 
pairs, for damages, the measure of which 
would be at least the cost of the repairs which 
the contractor refused or neglected to make. 

Respectfully submitted. 

Charles M. Walker. 

Corporation Counsel.

The following opinion: 

Office of the 
Counsel to the Corporation 
May 5, 1900 

To the Honorable, the City Council: 



Gentlemen — In reply to the order of your 
Honorable Body passed April 23, 1900, for an 
opinion whether the city under existing laws 
has the power, and if not, what changes in 
the law are necessary to give it the power to 
provide: 

First — That where a street or other local 
improvement has been made once and paid 
for by special assessment, when a similar im- 
provement in the same locality subsequently 
becomes necessary the cost of such similar 
improvement shall not be paid by special 
assessment, but only by general taxation. 

Sec©nd— That no installment of a special 
assessment when the same is made payable in 
installments shall bear any interest until the 
improvement is completed. 

Third — To the end that the rebate system 
may be totally abolished, that the amount of 
money raised by special assessment to pay 
the cost of a local improvement shall be 
limited to the actual cost ©f such improve- 
ment. ( 

In reply to the first proposition submitted 
by your Honorable Body, it is my opinion 
that the city already possesses the power to 
pay for such local improvements by general 
taxation, as is provided by the act concerning 
local improvements. 

"That the corporate authorities of cities, 
villages and incorporated towns are hereby 
vested with the power to make such local 
improvements as are authorized by law by 
special assessment, or by special taxation, of 
contiguous property, or by general taxation 
or otherwise, as they shall by ordinance pre- 
scribe." (Section 1, Act concerning local 
improvements, 1897.) 

As to the second proposition submitted, 
that no installment of a special assessment 
shall bear interest until the improvement is 
completed, it is my opinion that the city has 
not the power to abrogate the provisions of 
the State law, that "all installments, except 
the first, shall bear interest from and after 
date of confirmation until paid * * * ." 
(Sec. 42, Act concerning local improvements, 



1897.) The division of an assessment for a 
local improvement into installments was 
made possible and legal some years ago, for 
the convenience of a certain class of property 
owners for whom it was inconvenient to pay 
the whole assessment at once; and that the 
city would have money, or its equivalent, to 
pay for the work on such improvements as 
they progressed, it was necessary to issue im- 
provement bonds to anticipate the payment 
of such installments, and unless such install- 
ments should bear interest, there would be 
no fund from which to pay the interest pro- 
vided in such bonds. 

The present law concerning local improve- 
ments provides: 

"Any person may pay the whole assess- 
ment against any lot, piece or parcel of land, 
or any installment thereof, with interest up 
to the date of payment, at any time before 
the bonds hereinafter mentioned are issued, 
but after said bonds are issued, payment shall 
not be received of any installment before its 
maturity, unless interest thereon up to the 
second day of the sueceeding January is also 
paid at the same time." (Section 42, Act 
concerning local improvements, 1897), thus 
enabling any property owner to escape 
the payment of interest on the install- 
ments, except that which accrues from and 
after the date ©f confirmation to the date of 
payment, which can only be avoided by 
change in the State law in this regard. 

To eliminate the interest that accrues on 
an assessment upon such lots and parcels of 
land for which no objections are filed from 
the date of the judgment of confirmation en- 
tered by default against such lots and par- 
cels of land and the date of the disposition of 
the objections filed therein, this department 
enters no judgment upon the default taken 
until disposition is made of the objections in 
each case. 

The state law concerning local improve- 
ments should be changed by striking out the 
proviso contained in Section 62 thereof, 
which reads: 

"Provided, however, that the persons pay- 
ing installments not due and payable, after 
the letting of any contract for such improve- 
ment, shall also pay interest thereon to the 
second day of January next following," 
and a provision inserted in lieu thereof that 
such interest should not begin until a short 
period after the aetual commencing of the 






May 7,J

[1900 



work, such time to be taxed by an order duly 
entered of record in the court trying such 
special assessment. 

As to the third proposition submitted, it is 
my opinion that so long as local improve-" 
ments are made by special assessment, re- 
bates cannot be totally av®ided; but are re- 
duced to the minimum under the provisions 
of the present law concerning local improve- 
ments, so that the estimated cost of local im- 
provements seldom exceeds the actual cost 
thereof, but in fact, owing to the fluctua- 
tions in the price of materials and labor be- 
tween the dates of making such estimates 
and the letting of the contract there- 
for, the estimated cost falls short 
of the actual contract price, and many 
assessments have had to be relevied. Under 
the provisions of the present law concerning 
local improvements it devolves upon the City 
Engineer to prepare the estimate of the cost 
of any local improvement to be paid for by 
special assessment, and from his experience 
in this regard the estimates upon which 
assessments for such improvements are made 
approach the actual cost thereof as closely 
as possible taking into consideration the 
fluctuations in the cost of materials and labor. 
If a portion of the cost of each local improve- 
ment were apportioned to the public and 
assessed as public benefits against the city 
instead ©f assessing the whole cost of such 
improvement upon the property specially 
benefited a very substantial objection to spe- 
cial assessments would be removed. This of 
course would require large appropriations to 
be made each year, but justice could thus be 
done to the property owners, as is intended 
both by the spirit and letter of the present 
law concerning local improvements. 
Very respectfully yours, 

Arm and F. Teefy, 
Assistant Corporation Counsel.

Charles M. Walker, 

Corporation Counsel.

ing communication:

Gentlemen— You are respectfully ad- 



vised that under date of April 5th 1 trans" 
mitted to your Honorable Body a statement 
relative to the bids for advertisements to be 
inserted in a daily newspaper, and stated that 
the award had been made to the Chicago 
Daily Democrat, it being determined to be
